As we’ve seen, competitive games can drive innovation, improve performance, and showcase skills in a structured environment.

To provide such opportunities, global IT and cybersecurity association ISACA and The Center for infrastructure Assurance and Security will host new CSX Cyber Challenge competitions at ISACA’s upcoming CSX conferences around the world.

The CSX Cyber Challenge will be held at all of ISACA’s CSX 2016 conferences.

The first of these new global competitions will be held at ISACA’s CSX North America, in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, 17-19 October 2016.

ISACA debuted the CSX conference last year to a sold-out audience and expanded to hold this event in two more locations in 2016.

The CSX Cyber Challenge is a way for beginner competitors to practice both offensive and defensive skills, and improve their performance.

“IT and cybersecurity competitions go beyond traditional educational platforms and encourage professional development and cyber security training outside the classroom,” said Christos K. DimitriadisPh.D., CISA, CISM, CRISC, chair of ISACA’s Board of Directors and group director of Information Security for INTRALOT. “By offering the CSX Cyber Challenge at our CSX conferences, we are tapping into creative methods by which professionals and students are learning and developing skills today. And, healthy competition is fun, while it forces collaboration among peers or teammates.”
