UVA’s Cyber Defense team, competing for the first time in the Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition, won the Mid-Atlantic regional, which took place March 16 – 17. Our UVA team will advance on to the national competition later this spring.  This is a fantastic accomplishment and, in a poetic turn of events, our team achieved by edging out UMBC-- last year’s national champions.

Our team this year consisted of Roman Bohuk, Daniel Chen, Quintin DeGroot, Mariah Kenny, Calvin Krist, Abbas Naderi, Paul Sanders, Jacob Smith, and Jibang Wu. 

A huge thanks also goes to the National CyberWatch Mid-Atlantic CCDC for the hard work to organize this event.
