Cyber Defense Team

We have been involved in cyber defense competitions since 2009 when we first sent a team to the NECCDC which was then held at RIT. Only the top three finishers are recognized in each competition. UMaine finished 2nd in 2010 and 3rd in 2012.  We hosted the competition in 2010 and 2013 at the University of Maine.

For more details on the NECCDC go to For photos and videos of the competition go to our Flickr collection and look at the NECCDC albums. Also, we have been working with the Cybersecurity Competition Federation from its inception and is excited about the possibilities that this will bring to the world of Cybersecurity Competitions.

In Fall of 2014 we first participated in the National Cyber League Cyber Challenge competition with encouraging results. We will be posting details on this page soon.

On a happy note, the UMaine Cyber Defense Team qualified to compete in the 2015 NECCDC to be held at Syracuse University. More details will be posted to this website soon.
