For those of you who frequent our site, you know that BYU recently won the Rocky Mountain Regionals in cyber security. With this win, they qualified to compete in the National Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition, or NCCDC, in April.
The NCCDC is considered to be the biggest collegiate competition for cyber security. To participate you must first win a regional competition, which is no small feat. If you qualify, you will be one of ten teams competing for the national title.
With that background, making it to the competition is an impressive feat. This year, BYU went on to do more than qualify, and took second place. If you would like to know a little more about the NCCDC and this year’s results, click here. Good job cougars!
