To help mentor the next generation of cyber leaders, Raytheon has partnered the nation’s largest cyber defense competition.  The National Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition,  presented by Raytheon, provides college students from across the country the opportunity test their skills at protecting a network against cyber threats.

The NCCDC provides hands-on experience to equip students with the skills they need as future cyber experts. The competition is staged like a real business– to win students must keep a business running while fending off constant attacks.

Qualifying and state rounds lead to 10 different regional level competitions across the nation. The winners of the regionals compete at the national championship. In its ninth year of play, the 2014 tournament brought together more than 2000 grads and undergrads from 180 colleges and universities to compete to be crowned champ.
