UW CSE repeats as National Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition Champs!

UW CSE has just won the 2012 National Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition, repeating 2011’s performance.

Team members Mick Ayzenberg, Henry Baba-Weiss, Ian Finder, Karl Koscher, Landon Meernik, Miles Sackler, Cullen Walsh, and Lars Zornes – coached by Jake Appelbaum and advised by Melody Kadenko – qualified  for the National competition by winning the Pacific Rim Regionals last month.  Hearty congratulations to these folks, and also to Barbara Endicott-Popovsky of UW’s iSchool for encouraging a UW-wide focus on cybersecurity.
