Second Annual Collegiate Pentesting Competition Nov. 4-6
Rochester Institute of Technology is allowing students to attack the problem of cybersecurity from a different vantage point. Rather than only defending against attackers, as other national competitions challenge computing security students to do, they will be charged with attacking and analyzing a network. Teams from regional universities will face off as they attempt to break into computer networks, evaluate their weak points and offer plans to better secure them.
During the second annual competition, teams of three to six students will interrogate a mock-company’s network. The following morning, they will present a report to the judges on their findings and offer their suggestions for mitigating risk.
