"Circadence is excited to show young people that learning cyber can and should be a dynamic experience and will help them advance their careers," says Keenan Skelly, Vice President of Global Partnerships at Circadence. "We believe that this competition will demonstrate this in two ways: by staging a unique event that will entertain competitors, sponsors and audiences alike, and by benefiting programs for women and girls who will be an important factor in closing the cyber skills gap while more effectively diversifying the workforce," she adds.
"One of the primary objectives of the Wicked6 games is to demonstrate how competing in cyber ranges builds player skills that directly map to abilities that corporate recruiters are looking for," said Mari Galloway, CEO of the Women's Society of Cyberjutsu. "The Circadence platform provides the perfect environment for gamifying cybersecurity missions and outputting a numerous metrics illustrating how individual players and teams have performed their tasks and achieved their goals."
The competition will kick off in May 2019 with eager, collegiate cyber teams competing for a chance to show off their skills in a live, Grand Finale event. The top six elite teams after the qualifying round will go head-to-head during the live event onstage in Las Vegas.
The Wicked6 live competition will also be streamed on social media sites such as Twitch and YouTube streaming, and a live Twitter feed. For more information, visit https://wicked6.com/
