EC-Council - Global Cyberlympics

Global Cyberlympics is an international cyber security competition led and organized by the EC-Council foundation. Cyberlympics is a not for profit initiative created to discover new talents, methods, and ideas in cyber.

We want to discover gifted hackers and cyber defenders with the goal of educating the global community about the dangers of malicious hacking. Global Cyberlympics players solve challenges on the game network by applying skillsets such as computer forensics, ethical hacking, and penetration testing. Players face a multitude of hacking challenges such as lock picking, RFID, Biometric cracking, with an emphasis on working as a team, making the Cyberlympics more than just a typical Capture the Flag competition. These challenges mirror the real world situations information security professionals face every day as they protect computer systems from malicious hackers.

In the 2016 Cyberlympics, the top two teams representing each region found that to earn their switches and cables to connect to the game network they had to work as a team to crack a “Cryptex” lock vault which contained 2 USB drives storing the tools and challenges for each subsequent challenge.

Cyberlympics shines a spotlight on the best, most well rounded cyber defenders and their teams. Standouts in the Games are the best in their field – and EC-Council Foundation is proud to recognize their skills. The 2016 winners were Hack.ERS form the Netherlands with Jobless Hackers, also from the Netherlands, in second. The bronze medalists were KLHT of Russia.
