Yuba College Information Technology students receive recognition

Lake County News

NORTHERN CALIFORNIA – Four Yuba College students – Bob King, Jason Kane, Joe Bray and Jeremy Fabiano – won second place at the 2013 Fall National Cyber League (NCL), Western Conference Silver Bracket competition.
All four students are preparing for the Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition (CCDC).
The first day of the competition is a virtual qualifier; they will be competing on Saturday, March 1.
Students are given a virtual scenario where they must defend an e-commerce server network from attack, if the “‘49’er Hackers” are successful and place in the top eight, they will move on.
The mission of the Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition (CCDC) system is to provide institutions with computer security curriculum in a controlled, competitive environment to assess their students' depth of understanding and operational competency in managing the challenges inherent in protecting a network infrastructure.
Not only do students get a chance to test their knowledge in an operational environment, they also will get a chance to network with industry professionals.
CCDC provides a unique opportunity for students and industry professionals to interact and discuss many of the security and operational challenges the students will soon face as they enter the job market.
Yuba College has three satellite campuses, Clear Lake Campus, Beale Air Force Base and the Sutter County Center.

  1. Thank you James for posting this for me. If you have a NCL or a CCDC team edit this post and send it to your local newspaper or public information officer. The students are on Cloud 9 or higher after receiving recognition!
