Capitol Students at CCDC

CCDC 2013 This past week, Capitol's Cyber Team competed at the 2013 National CyberWatch Center Mid-Atlantic Regional Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition (CCDC) at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab. This year's competition was titled "Securing the Vote: Electronic Voting Systems and Cybersecurity." 


According to CCDC's website "The Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition's primary focus is to give students an experience in defending computer networks and systems against targeted attacks. Each year, the competition involves a compelling scenario meant to represent the non-cyber impacts resulting from cyber attacks (e.g. electric power, health care, electronic voting). A scenario-based competition provides participants context and focus for their actions and allows prioritization of their efforts within the structure of a controlled environment and scoring rubric."
