Congratulations to team Clemson. On Feb 2nd a team of Clemson Computer Science and Computer Engineering students began their quest to win the National Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition (NCCDC). The competition is designed to test student’s ability in managing and protecting the operational components of a commercial network. The focus is not only centered on the technical aspects of protecting a network, but will challenge the team’s ability to manage the business processes needed in commercial environments.
Competing in the South East regionals (SECCDC), Clemson’s 11 student team scored well enough in the preliminary event held at Clemson University’s Information Technology Center on Feb 2nd to be invited to compete in the on-site competition at Kennesaw State University to be held March 5th-7th. On-site judging was provided by a security professional from Dell’s SecureWorks team. This is the second year Clemson has competed in the competition. Team members include: Samuel Casacio, Christopher Corsi, Daniel Dara, Steven Dinger, Brown Farinholt, James Jernigan, Dennis Lingerfelt, Richard Renner, Aravindh Sampath, Steve Higareda, Edward Sullivan. Serving as team advisors are John Hoyt and Dr. Kevin McKenzie both from the Office of Information Security and Privacy (OISP) with Clemson Computing and Information Technology (CCIT).
