Last year, the National Cyber League and CompTIA started a partnership. MistressVen0m has compiled a list of answers to some questions we've received to share all of the great things that come along with this partnership!
Potential employers may not have heard of NCL (yet), but they've heard of CompTIA!

John "Mako" McGill
The CompTIA Security+ certification is the gold standard in cybersecurity. Mako got his in 2008 and has since written study guides, led study groups, and used a mountain of materials to help people pass. He understands your concerns, the temptation to cheat, and addresses both. Learn what resources he recommends!
CryptoKait almost withdrew from her computer science classes, due to a sense of not belonging. Her experience is not unique. Another Player Ambassador learned that the graduation rate for women in I.T. programs at her own school is just 11%, for the same reason. Two organizations in CryptoKait's early experience, though, have been influential enough to keep her and other women in the game.
CryptoKait is excited to announce that WiCyS has partnered with NCL to present the first official WiCyS CTF! Challenges will be social, immersive, and focused on WiCyS, women of historical significance, and female-oriented fun. There will be prizes (apart from the automatic perks of skill- and résumé-enhancement!), but seating is limited. Find out how you can get involved!
