What is CCDC? Check out the CCDC website to find out!
The National CCDC site puts it best, as far as activities go, with the statement “the first competition that specifically focuses on the operational aspect of managing and protecting an existing “commercial” network infrastructure. Not only do students get a chance to test their knowledge in an operational environment, they will also get a chance to network with industry professionals who are always on the look out for up and coming engineers.”
The three main components of the competition are: Services uptime, Implementation of Injects, and Defend the network against cyber attacks.
