MVCC High School Network Security Competition
MVCC Center for Systems Security and Information Assurance (CSSIA)
The Center for Systems Security and Information Assurance (CSSIA) originated in 2003 and is a Regional Advanced Technological Education (ATE) Center for Cyber Security and Information Assurance. In 2010, CSSIA received funding to become a national resource center.
CSSIA has developed a successful model for partnering with industry and academia in developing and operating innovative skills-based competitions. These competitions result in program improvements and support the capacity building necessary to meet the critical national need for Cyber Security technicians. Skills based competitions also provide a valuable opportunity for faculty to promote their information technology and network security programs.
The competition has been designed to test students' knowledge, critical thinking skills, and trouble-shooting skills. This is accomplished through a three-part structure:
General Security Knowledge, Networking
Orientation & Team Structure
Quiz and Hands-On
