Cybersecurity students from Tallahassee Community College are competing in the National Cyber League spring season. Team members Alex Kitos, Cason Towles, and Cole Isaacs are eager to put their skills to the test.
The biannual cybersecurity competition provides students with real-world scenarios in a safe and controlled environment. The competition is designed to help students develop and hone their cybersecurity skills, while also providing them with the opportunity to network with industry professionals. The competition is open to both high school and college students, with teams of up to ten students competing against each other.
The competition comprises several rounds, with each round requiring students to solve increasingly complex cybersecurity challenges. The challenges are designed to test a range of skills, including vulnerability assessment, web application exploitation, network analysis, and cryptography.
“Tallahassee Community College is very supportive of our students’ efforts and wishes them the best of luck in the competition,” said Carlos Torres, faculty member and coach of the TCC NCL team. “TCC recognizes the importance of cybersecurity and is committed to providing students with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in this field.”
TCC offers several cybersecurity programs, including an A.S. in Cybersecurity, an A.S. in Network Systems Technology, and several certificate programs in the technology field.
