UNCW Cyber Defense Team earns 4th place out of 24 participants!

UNCW Cyber Defense Team (CDC) successfully represented UNCW at the Southeast Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition (SECCDC). The team members relentlessly prepared for this competition since the beginning of Fall 2014. As a part of the preparation, all of the team members along with some other Cyber Defense Club members participated at the National Cyber League, which is a national capture the flag competition, and ranked in the top 10% individually and as a team. In early March, at the virtual qualifiers the UNCW CDC team competed against teams from 24 universities from the southeast region and was among the top 8 teams invited to participate in the regional competition.

MIS, CIT, CS and MS CSIS students successfully represented UNCW, and won 4th place in the two day competition that took place at Kennesaw State University on April 7-8, 2015. SECCDC focuses on the operational aspect of managing and protecting (defending) an existing network infrastructure. Teams are assessed based on their ability to detect and respond to outside threats, maintain availability of existing services such as mail servers and web servers, respond to business requests such as the addition or removal of additional services, and balance security needs against business needs.
