The CSAW games, founded by Professor Nasir Memon as a small contest called Cyber Security Awareness Week, have grown to become the most comprehensive set of cybersecurity challenges by and for students around the globe.
NYU students, along with student teams from CSAW's global partners, continue to design the contests under the mentorship of information security professionals and faculty.
Now in its 20th year, CSAW is one of NYU Tandon's largest events and an important fixture in cyber security education.
1st place team: $1000
2nd place team: $750
3rd place team: $500
*Please see Competition Details for prizes for the Fuzzing Competition, which are higher for 1st and 2nd place.
Prize payments are distributed beginning in December 2022 through NYU's payment system, iBuy. Registration with NYU iBuy is required and payments may be subject to US tax withholding.
