In 2003, it was a small, local competition founded by Professor Nasir Memon. Today, CSAW is preparing the nation's brightest students to shape the future of the industry.

Competitions are developed by undergraduate and graduate students associated with the OSIRIS Lab and the Center for Cyber Security at NYU Tandon School of Engineering in collaboration with student teams from across the globe. These students represent some of the leading security programs and academic institutions worldwide.
