Cyber is a team sport. On the playing field as in the security operations center, skills matter. But trust, communication, and teamwork matter more. Cyber sports teach security professionals to think critically and creatively about offense and defense, about the measures and counter-measures associated with every move. Teams can’t win without training, without adequate preparation and the proper equipment. Anticipating and simulating opponents’ attack scenarios between games help teams prepare from week to week for each new rival.
