Participants are charged with the defense of a fictional nation, Berylia, against intricate cyberattacks planned by a simulated adversary. In addition to technical challenges, the exercise offers training in legal, strategic, and communications tactics to ensure a well-rounded preparation for real-world conflicts.

This year's simulation incorporates cutting-edge neural network systems to reflect the critical role of artificial intelligence in contemporary cyber defense scenarios.
