PlayCyberⓇ and Hack The Box Join Forces to Launch First Global, All-Women's Cyber Battles at WICKED6Ⓡ 2024

PR Newswire

ASHBURN, Va., Nov. 21, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- PlayCyber®, announced that it has teamed with Hack The Box, the leading online gamified cybersecurity upskilling platform, to host the inaugural WICKED6® Cyber Battle, a global, all-women's team cyber games tournament, which will be played on Hack The Box's virtual Hacking Battlegrounds.

In early March 2024, teams will compete in qualifying rounds to determine which six teams advance to the championship round, a live-streamed battle during the finale of WICKED6 on Saturday, March 30, 2024, to crown the winners. WICKED6 is an annual cybersecurity games and workforce development event for women. WICKED6 provides the opportunity for thousands of women globally to play cyber games—many for the first-time!—to learn cyber skills and advance in cyber careers. 

"As a company, Hack The Box is proud to have achieved many firsts, and hosting the first all-women's global team tournament on our Hacking Battlegrounds is a very special accomplishment," said Haris Pylarinos, Founder and CEO at Hack The Box. "On Hacking Battlegrounds, players from various backgrounds and skill levels enjoy a highly effective way to learn and practice hands-on cyber skills through a fun, gamified approach. We're excited to see how the Wicked6 Tournament teams take this to the next level and display the many talents that women in cyber bring to the table."

Innovative skills-based approaches, like WICKED6's tournament, build robust cyber career pathways and encourage greater diversity and inclusion.

"We need more women gaming in cyber, so we designed an all-women's tournament for cyber-skilled women to compete," explained Jessica Gulick, CEO at Katzcy. "The tournament is an extension of WICKED6. Each year, thousands of women from around the world participate in cyber games and consistently 20% are playing for the very first time. Cyber gaming builds confidence while also upskilling in a fun, team environment, which helps women to pursue well-paying, fulfilling cyber jobs."
