Recently, members of the DayZero student organization participated in a virtual qualifier for the Southeast Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition (SECCDC). Around 30 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 March 9-10.  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.   Winning the regional will earn the team a spot at the National Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition held in San Antonio, TX.
