Hall Hack-a-thon Begins — All day exercise

This hack-a-thon is a cyber security competition, dedicated to finding the top computer network defense teams. This event tests the skills of information assurance professionals in teams of 4 to 6 people in the areas of ethical hacking, computer network defense and computer forensics. Each round serves as an elimination round until only winning teams remain. The top winning teams will compete at the November 3, 2016 finals to win amazing tech gadgets and cyber security training courses.

The CyberXchange 2016 Hack-a-thon aspires to create an opportunity for ethical hacking to be accepted, practiced and demonstrated for the purpose of understanding what it takes to protect and secure critical information and assets. One key initiative is to foster an environment that creates child online protection through education.
