Two-year and four-year colleges and universities are putting together their top tech-savvy students to form teams to compete. These teams will build and defend their mock production business infrastructure from professional “hackers” who are given the challenge to take each team’s production systems offline and breach their security. While the teams work hard to fend off “hackers,” the competition judging staff will deploy network enhancement and upgrade challenges to teams, judging team’s performance, scoring and supporting the overall event.
Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, Iowa, Missouri and Wisconsin are buzzing with MWCCDC excitement as applications are rolling in. These competitions are experiences your students can build from in their career development. No previous competition experience is needed.
