Congratulations to the WilmU CCDC 2018 Team!

On March 23, 2018, in Uncategorized, by Eric Arnoth

The following was sent out by the Wilmington University Director of the Center for Cyber Security, Mark Hufe:

Congratulations to the WilmU Cyber Wildcats! The ‘Cats earned the third place trophy in the Regional Finals of the 2018 Mid Atlantic Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition held at Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab Thursday through Saturday March 15th to 17th. To get there, the team placed in the top eight of thirty teams competing in the qualifiers held in early February.

 

The theme for this year’s event was “Breaking News”, in which a news organization fired it’s IT department and the student team was tasked with taking over. The environment consisted of eight or ten systems, such as email, Active Directory, DNS, etc. which had to hardened and defended against attack from a team of seasoned cybersecurity professionals. Their job was to keep the bad guys out, keep the data safe, keep services up, submit incident response reports and report to the CEO.

 

Our team included eight competitors and one alternate. Of the eight competitors, six were CNS majors and two were MSIST graduate students.

 

First place went to the University of Virginia with second place going to the defending national champions, University of Maryland, Baltimore County. Competition was stiff and the Cyber Wildcats distinguished themselves quite well!

 

How do you think employers react when they see “Mid Atlantic Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition” listed on a candidate’s resume? Certifications are mostly about memorization. Competitions are about doing stuff. The Cyber Wildcats are always looking for new members.  Wilmington University students should sign up on this website to learn more.  Be sure to use your student email when registering.
