Cal Poly Pomona wins western cyber defense competition

For the third year in a row, a Cal Poly Pomona team won the Western Regional Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition. The 20-hour competition took place over three days beginning March 25 at Cal Poly Pomona.

The team, made up of students from the Business Administration, Science and Engineering colleges, will go on to compete at the national competition next month.

Students worked to create a West Coast backup operations center while fending off attacks from hackers. This year’s competition scenario included a series of terrorist attacks, both physical and virtual, that shut down U.S. stock trading for several weeks.

Five other schools competed in the cyber defense event, including Cal State San Bernardino, which placed second, and Arizona’s University of Advancing Technology, which placed third.
