Channel 5 (WABI), Channel 2 (WLBZ) and the Bangor Daily News reported on the 2013 Northeast Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition at UMaine over the weekend where 10 teams competed by defending against computer hacking attempts made by national cybersecurity professionals. The media spoke to event organizer George Markowsky, associate director of the UMaine School of Computing and Information Science, who says the event is a great experience for students training to be cyberprofessionals. Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, N.Y., took top honors. The winners of the northeast division will compete in the nationals in Texas next month. The University of Maine team, which was missing two of its eight members, ranked sixth.
