UPDATE: DU Team represents at next phase of NCAE cyber games!

A DU team, made up of a wide range of DU students, came in second place at the next phase of the NCAE cyber games. During this event, they had to secure systems against attackers and defend them in real time. While only the top team in this round of competition goes on to the finals/nationals, we are hopeful they might be able to vie for a wild card slot. Either way, great job to the team members who competed and thanks for making DU look so good!!

Team Members (arbitrary alphabetical order, by last name):

  • George Amaya, MS Student, Computer Science
  • Cora Domescek, MS Student, Cybersecurity
  • John Jones, BS Student, Computer Science
  • Urvashi Kishnani, MS Student, Computer Science
  • Nidhi Madabhushi, PhD Candidate, Computer Science
  • Alex Sifuentes, MS Student, Cybersecurity

Overview

The National Centers of Academic Excellence (CAE) in Cybersecurity Community is composed of more than 300 institutions across five geographic regions, and the national competition program will follow this regional structure. Each region is led by a Regional Competition Coordinator, and the first competition cycle will have the capacity for up to 165 CAE institutions to participate.

As a member of the CAE community, University of Denver students have the opportunity to participate in these nationwide cyber security training events. They will be styled as Capture-the-Flag (CTF) type events, where you will be challenged to complete various “hacking” activities.

Please note that specific dates/times for the CTF challenges are not yet released, but please register today to ensure that you have a slot in the competitions!
