A team of 8 students, 6 from Computer Science and Engineering and 2 from Business Computer Information Systems, traveled to San Antonio to compete in the first ever Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition (CCDC). In this contest, students managed a network for a fictional company and earned points for keeping network services up and running while a professional red team was launching attacks. Prof. Tate and Prof. Jensen coached and traveled with the students, and travel expenses were generously paid for by Microsoft.
