First, it aims to provide an educational venue in which students can learn critical knowledge and skills needed to administer and defend computer networks and systems, and gives the opportunity to apply the theory and skills that students acquired in their information systems and computer science course work. Second, UNCW Cyber Defense Club will be joining the Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition (CCDC), which challenges students to defend network services against attacks by professional penetration testers.

The IEB competes in the Mid-Atlantic Region of the Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl in November each year. The team is comprised of students from all CSB degree concentrations. Approximately 6 weeks prior to the competition the team is provided 15 ethical cases on a wide range of topics (i.e., the FDA approval process, the role of Ethics Officers on Public Boards, the Pay Day lending industry). We meet regularly to discuss both sides of the ethical situation, determine which parties would benefit or be harmed based on the outcome chosen and what ethical theory (or theories) can be used to support our position. Six of the 15 cases are randomly chosen at the Regional competition for presentation. Although there is no correct answer to the ethical dilemmas, the team strives to carefully consider each of the ethical cases and chose a side of the argument that is best supported by existing evidence and theory.
