1 JOLT Cyber Challenge

Introducing JOLT, the ultimate three-day cybersecurity challenge that will leave you charged up and ready to conquer the digital realm. Gather your squad of four and get ready to power through a series of thrilling challenges designed to put your cyber skills to the ultimate test! Save the date for October 6th – 8th hosted on the UALR campus! High school students, college students and professionals are welcome to compete in this weekend-long cybersecurity challenge where their cybersecurity, encoding, and software knowledge will meet their game-winning skills to solve Jeopardy-style challenges designed by cyber experts using real-world techniques.

Embrace the Code Breaker Challenge:

Step into the world of “Code Breaker,” this year’s heart-pounding game at JOLT. Picture this: a heroic protagonist on a mission to thwart a mysterious hacking villain. Immerse yourself in an exciting gameplay experience reminiscent of late 80s and early 90s classics like Mario, Sonic, and Castlevania. Relive the nostalgia of vintage video games as you journey through the digital landscape, facing off against challenges that will truly test your mettle.

Built by a team of cyber Game Makers who know the ins and outs of the digital battlefield, JOLT is not your average hackathon. Get ready to amp up your game as you face off against a range of Jeopardy-style challenges that will challenge your mastery of web vulnerabilities, reverse engineering, encoding, and more. But that’s not all – JOLT isn’t just about showcasing your skills in isolation. It’s about connecting you to real-world tools and techniques that cybersecurity professionals use every day.
