CCBC Cyber Defense Team recognized by Baltimore County Executive Jim Smith
Team places first at Mid-Atlantic Regional Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition

Baltimore County Executive Jim Smith recognized and presented executive citations to the CCBC Cyber Defense Team for its performance in the 2008 Mid-Atlantic Regional Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition (CCDC) in March.

CCBC’s student team (Becki Dorffner, Kessely Korboi, Matt Streb, Matt Wines, Justin Wray and Jeff Yates) placed first overall in the competition and qualified for the national competition as a result. During the contest, students were scored on their ability to thwart the advances of a team of professional hackers set to attack their simulated business networks.

This year's Mid-Atlantic Regional CCDC included two one-day qualifying rounds for teams composed of undergraduate and graduate students from nine two- and four-year colleges in Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Washington, D.C.

The top two teams from each of the qualifying rounds (CCBC, George Washington University, James Madison University and Towson University) went on to compete in the third Mid-Atlantic Regional CCDC in March.

Coached by Associate Professor Casey O’Brien, CCBC’s team (which included the National CCDC's only female participant) became the first community college in the country to qualify for the National CCDC, held in San Antonio, Texas April 18-20.
