Red Lambda is proud to both sponsor this year's NCCDC and provide volunteers to participate in the competition as Red Team members.
This is the third year in a row as a NCCDC Red Team member for Red Lambda's Luke McOmie.
The NCCDC is a great competition that prepares students to join the security industry," said Chad Loder, co-founder and vice president of security solutions at Rapid7.
This is the 6th annual NCCDC, which is hosted and organized by the Center for Infrastructure Assurance and Security at the University of Texas at San Antonio.
The CIAS is committed to establishing a pipeline of highly qualified students who are interested in pursuing cyber security careers," said Dwayne Williams, director of the NCCDC.
The NCCDC has grown tremendously in its first five years.
The NCCDC is the national championship of many state level CCDC events, and so the competitors here are the best of the lot, ready to take on complex challenges.
The NCCDC is a three day event and the first competition that specifically focuses on the operational aspect of managing and protecting an existing "commercial" network infrastructure.
