What Is CyberWVU?
Our goal is simple: broaden the awareness of cyber security and its
importance. We can better equip general users in their day-to-day interaction
with technology by holding workshops on practicing cyber safety, as well as
practicing with industry standard equipment such as Cisco Products.
Additionally we aim to build a legacy of cyber defense that attracts students to
our program and promotes West Virginia University as a university on the
cutting edge of cyber security
As part of this awareness, CyberWVU competes in competitions such as NCL

National Cyber League
The National Cyber League (NCL) was founded in May 2011 to provide an
ongoing virtual training ground for collegiate students to develop, practice,
and validate their cybersecurity skills. Using lab exercises designed around

individual and team games, the NCL is a first-of-its-kind ongoing experiment
in learning and gaming using next-generation high-fidelity simulation
The competition consist of a one week qualifier to determine your bracket.
Brackets are gold, silver, bronze, pewter.
This is then followed with two games lasting 3 hours each. Your total
combined score after both games determines your rank within your bracket.
