A team of 6 UCF students from the Collegiate Cyber Defense Club @ UCF won 1st Place in the 2018 Department of Energy Cyber Defense Competition at Argonne National Laboratory in Lemont, IL. The team was tasked with designing, building, and defending a corporate network including industrial control systems for a fictitious natural gas distribution company. During the competition, the Red Team, a group of professional penetration testers from the Illinois National Guard and Argonne National Laboratory, attempted to breach the student teams' networks to steal data, deface websites, or entirely delete critical systems. UCF was one of 25 teams invited to compete in the DOE Cyber Defense Competition from a pool of 61 schools who submitted bids to compete this year.
