Cynet, an Israeli based Cybersecurity company having offices in UK and US has announced a “Cyber Attack Incident Response (IR)” challenge where the contest winner will be awarded a $5000 vacation on offer.

Officially dubbed as Cynet IR Challenge which begins on May 15th, 2020, the participants need to respond to real-world environments such as cyber-attacks and data breaches. On an overall note, those participating will be tested in damage mitigation, data breach response management, improvement in recovery times, and cut down in costs arising from simulated attacks.

“Cybersecurity professionals will be allowed to enter the contest based on their skills in automated breach detection. This includes investigation skills in over 25 IR challenges such as determining the cause of the attack vector and its potential impact” said a statement released by Cynet.

It will be a 2-week long contest and the winner will be determined based on the time they take to complete each task and correct responses.

Due to the Corona Virus pandemic, most of the technology geeks are at home and so the competition will prove as a great platform to groom their skills in combating a variety of cyber threats. All participants and the winner will be getting recognition in the industry along with the certificate of completion along with the financial help- only to the winner.
