Just received SANS NewsBites’ May 19, 2009 issue (Vol. 11, Num. 39) and one article caught my eye. Seems that the sponsors of these Cyber Challenges need some help in naming them:

…a week from Friday…three national cyber games will be announced at a Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) luncheon.  The competitions are part of a huge talent search and talent development program to find and nurture the young people who have the skills to become the next generation of great security professionals… But we are trying to agree on a name for the SANS competition.   Please pick the one, two or three you like best and send them back to apaller@sans.org. Thanks in advance.

SANS Netwars
SANS War Games
SANS NetAttack Games
SANS King of the Hill Challenge
SANS Security Challenge
SANS HACK/Anti-HACK
SANS InfoSec Challenge
SANS Challenge Net
SANS Security Warrior Competition
SANS Capture the Flag Student Tournament
SANS War Game Challenge
SANS War Games Challenge
SANS InfoSec Faceoff

It’s a great idea and sounds like loads of fun. How about we help them out? I chose SANS War Games, SANS Security Challenge, and SANS InfoSec Faceoff.
