CCDC Qualifier This Saturday at UAT

Cyber Security Degree at UAT

Some very dedicated UAT Network Security students have been practicing as a team for the upcoming Western Regional Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition (WRCCDC) in March, but in order to reach the regionals, they first must qualify.

The CCDC Qualifier takes place on Saturday, Jan. 27, and our students will compete from the Cyber Warfare Range on campus, from 10:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

“UAT is competing against over 16 other colleges and we are all Blue Teams, defending servers against the CCDC Red Team. They have practiced their skills for months and I wish them all good luck this Saturday,” said Professor Wayne Kibbe.

The UAT WRCCDC Team has the brightest and most dedicated Network Security students that UAT has to offer. Thank you to Robert Thompson, Eric Dodge, Kelvin Ashton, Jeremy Bunce, Mitchell Blystone-Pemberton, Adam Morris, Jordan Rude and Luke Schloesser for filling out the competing roster.

Team alternates include Josh Mikkelson, Ashley Pearson, Lily Spear and Jackson Nestler, who may be in the room during the competition to observe.

Good luck Blue Team!
