UW wins cyber defense competition

For the second year, a team from the University of Washington’s Computer Science and Engineering has won the National Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition.

Over the weekend, the UW’s “Team Hillarious” beat the U.S. Air Force Academy and Texas A&M University/College Station, which took second and third, respectively. The competition took place in San Antonio, Texas.

The 10 college teams had to defend a fictional computer network, Go Mommy, from hacker attacks over the two days of the conference. They were scored on how well they repelled the attacks and kept their network running, as well as how well they performed on other business-related tasks.
