Reminder – meeting this Saturday

On September 9, 2015, in Uncategorized, by Eric Arnoth

As a reminder to all, we’ll be meeting in New Castle this Saturday, Sept 12.  Students are asked to arrive early enough to be ready to start by 10AM.  Those who have never been to the club are asked to arrive closer to 9AM so we can setup their accounts and get them all the access they need.  In preparation of that, new attendees should fill out this form if they don’t yet have VPN access.


This weekend’s meeting will also mark the official start of our CCDC 2016 preparations.  Team members and hopefuls are expected to attend.


See you all there!

NCL Registration is now open!

On September 4, 2015, in Uncategorized, by Eric Arnoth

For those who don’t know the NCL, this is a fantastic resource for learning more about Cybersecurity and improving your hands-on skills. Filled with great challenges, this is an excellent opportunity for all students looking to ready themselves for graduation and the job market.

WilmU CCDC team members and hopefuls are expected to participate.

Here’s the announcement, for those who did not get the email:


It is estimated that by 2017, there will be a global shortage of two million cybersecurity professionals. This statistic proves that the need to educate and train students to become cybersecurity specialists is greater than ever. The National Cyber League (NCL) provides an ongoing virtual training ground for participants to develop and validate cybersecurity skills using content aligned with professional certifications and industry recognized competencies. Registration is now open; let the games begin.
“Starting in October, individuals and teams from across the country will develop and validate cybersecurity knowledge and skills across a range of industry-recognized competencies in competitive exercises,” states Casey W. O’Brien, NCL Commissioner. “Companies looking to hire can get access to a national pool of talent, something many organizations today are clamoring for.”
The NCL season integrates a performance-based curriculum aligned to the EC-Council Certified Ethical Hacker™ and CompTIA Security+™ certification exams and provides hosted lab exercises, game play, instructor syllabi and video tutorials.
Developing and validating cybersecurity knowledge and skills in students is a critical addition to traditional education and training programs. The NCL offers faculty from two and four-year colleges and universities free resources to integrate the games into the classroom and supplies a clear pathway of instruction.
“I was able to use the NCL as an assignment last fall in my undergraduate security course,” states Dr. Mark Shaneck, Online Department Chair for Cyber Security at Liberty University. “It was a great opportunity for the students to be able to not only use these exercises to learn a lot about security and cryptography, but also to exercise their skills alongside students from across the country. Competing on a national scale, with upwards of 1,000 students, can not only validate what the students have worked hard to learn but also show what areas are lacking and could use more help.”
Instructors receive a suggested course progression from NCL preparatory lab exercises to competition challenges to certifications. This allows students to use the NCL Cyber Gymnasium environment to develop knowledge and skills and then demonstrate these newly acquired skills in competitive individual and team play. It also allows the NCL to measure player’s game performance and produce an individualized Scouting Report on strengths and weakness amongst various learning objectives and industry-recognized competencies. Organizations looking to hire based on what participants can do, rather than simply what they know, can get access to the Scouting Report data.
Registration is now open through October 3rd.
Regular season games are October 31st and November 14th – four hours each.
