DayZero Wins Invitation
Posted on February 25, 2019 by Spencer Radford
Recently, members of the DayZero cyber competition club participated in a virtual qualifier for the Southeast Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition (SECCDC). 31 universities from Georgia, Alabama, Florida, Tennessee, South Carolina, and North Carolina all competed in order gain an invitation to the onsite regional competition which will be held at Kennesaw State University on April 3-4. USA’s DayZero team was one of the top 8 teams that received an invitation to the regional onsite. The competition itself pits students who are managing real computer systems and networks in a corporate business context against a team of attackers that is trained to infiltrate those systems. This is USA’s sixth year competing in SECCDC and our fourth year in a row to move forward to the final round at Kennesaw. Winning the regional will earn the team a spot at the National Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition held in San Antonio, TX. For more information about SECCDC, you can visit https://www.seccdc.org/. Special thanks goes to Phillip Peterson from CGI who served as a local white team judge for the qualifier.
DayZero is a USA student organization dedicated to furthering cybersecurity knowledge and skills through participation in regional and international cyber competitions and capture the flag events. For more information about the club, see http://www.southalabama.edu/colleges/soc/dayzero.html
