UNH selected to host Northeast Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition


Saturday, November 18, 2017

The University of New Hampshire will host the Northeast Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition on March 14-16.

 The UNH Cyber Security Club will be one of ten teams to compete in Kingsbury Hall and be scored in two categories – services and inject. The other nine finalists will be determined from a field of 32 schools in the northeast at the online qualifying event on January 27.

 “This is a fabulous career opportunity for our students as many of our sponsors connect with them at the event,” says Kenneth Graf, the team’s advisor and lecturer in computer science. “UNH is embracing cyber security and this team serves as a great supplement to the classroom experience.”

 It marks the eighth year UNH participates in the completion and the second time they host the event. The Wildcats finished fifth a year ago and finished as high as second in 2012. The winning team will advance to the national competition in April.
