2017-2018 SoCal Cyber Cup Challenge
The cyber defense competition, which is hosted by the nonprofit NDIA San Diego Chapter, Securing Our eCity Foundation, National University, and for profit Circadence and Scalematrix, is focused on engaging students in learning about cybersecurity. The Cyber Cup’s goal is to encourage students to learn about computer security threats by providing an educational venue where students are able to apply the theories and practical skills they have learned, and foster a spirit of teamwork, ethical behavior and effective communication both within and across teams.
