UMBC cyber defense team seeks new members

September 8th, 2010

UMBC’s Cyber Defense Team is looking for new members. In spring 2010 the team competed in the regional Collegiate Cyber Defense Championship for the east coast. In this competition, each team defended a mock corporate network against a horde of professional hackers in a fast-paced, real-time event over the course of two days. The competition is also a great way to network with government agencies and key companies in the security industry.

The UMBC Cyber Defense Team provides a great opportunity to gain practical, hands-on experience in information security, intrusion detection, cybersecurity, and network security. The team practices both penetration and defense of isolated networks similar to real business environments. The group will give introduction presentations 12-1pm on Wednesday, September 15th in ITE 201b and 1-2pm on Thursday, September 16th in ITE 325b.

No experience is required, but you should be motivated to learn about computer networks and systems security. Contact Justin McMillion at jmcmil1 @ for more information.
