The U.S. Cyber Challenge (USCC) today announced that the International Council of E-Commerce Consultants (EC-Council) has agreed to sponsor awards for the top three winners of the Cyber Quests Fall 2011 competition.

Winners will be determined based on who achieves the highest quiz score in the shortest amount of time. Registration is open through September 8.

EC-Council is sponsoring prizes for the first, second and third place winners that include EC-Council’s flagship Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) v7 training, Security+ training by Element K, official courseware, exam vouchers and passes for Hacker Halted, TakeDownCon and CAST cyber security conferences.
