Cyber Defense Competition


UTSA‘s Center for Infrastructure Assurance and Security (CIAS) put on the National Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition this weekend and I had the distinct honor of being a White Team member on Sunday.  Other Denim Group folks who were also on the White Team at various times during the weekend included John Dickson, Kevin, Chad and Phil.

This was a really impressive event.  Unlike a lot of computer security competitions the focus is on defense rather than offense.  The student teams have to maintain and protect a network while dealing with simulated requests from business users.  That would be hard enough by itself but they also have to deal with a hostile Red Team that is trying to break into their network, steal information and stop services.

Check out a article on the event.
