The threat of cyber attacks targeting the United States is a serious issue at the highest levels of government. NCCDC provides higher education institutions with information assurance and computer security programs in a competitive environment.
" San Antonio boasts one of our nation's largest military contingents," said Dr. Gregory White , Director of the UTSA CIAS. "Students who participate in these kinds of competitions are at the forefront of the war on terror. Cyber terrorism is very real. Each day, our federal government and commercial sectors are at risk. Our competition provides the necessary foundation for students to implement what they've learned to serve a higher calling as key defenders against cyber terrorism and maintain the security of our networks."For more information please visit http://cias.utsa.edu or contact the CIAS at 210-458-2119.
