The Cyber Security Challenge Australia (CySCA), which will be held from 9 - 10 October, is the only national cyber security competition running for 24 hours.
It provides students from across Australia a chance to compete in cyber security challenges and test their technical skills and communication know-how.
The ANU Research School of Computer Science has been running a Cyber Academy, which is a series of workshops organised by Canberra-based cyber security education company Fifth Domain, to train ANU students in the cyber security skills necessary to effectively take part in the competition.
Fifth Domain is running a practice session on Saturday 29 September to give students a chance to test their skills before the main event.
The College, and Fifth Domain, would like to invite observers who would want to learn more about the CySCA competition to come along to the event and cheer the participants.
Fifth Domain will also be hosting an information session and a few demonstrations for the visitors.
