Ivy Tech Community College–Northeast announces winner of Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition

Ivy Tech Community College−Northeast hosted Indiana’s Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition Feb. 16. Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology took first place honors in the competition for the second year in a row and Ivy Tech−Northeast placed second.

Teams also competed from Ivy Tech−North Central, Trine University, Indiana University Southeast and Indiana Tech.

The six teams inherited an “operational” network from a fictional business complete with email, websites, data files and users. Teams were required to correct problems on their network, perform typical business tasks and defend their networks from a red team that generated live, hostile activity continuously. During the competition, points were awarded based on how well the students maintained and defended their services.

Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology will go on to compete at the regional competition in Minneapolis and from there the winning team will compete in the national competition in San Antonio, Texas.

Ivy Tech Community College–Northeast launched an associate degree in Information Security in fall 2011 and is a recognized Center of Excellence for two-year schools, or a CAE-2Y, by the National Security Agency. The college also offers a grant-funded Cyber Technology certificate program that trains individuals for a career in as little as one year with opportunities to work toward industry-recognized certifications.
