For the first time, Canyon Crest Academy Cyber Defense Team, led by CCA teacher  Michael Remington, won the San Diego Mayor’s Cyber Cup on March 15 at UC San Diego Supercomputer Center. The six members of CCA’s Cyber defense team attended the competition.

The San Diego Mayor’s Cyber Cup defense competition is sponsored by the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) as one of its science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) outreach initializes. It is a challenging competition between teams of middle and high school students from all of California. Acting as network and local machine administrators, these students respond, protect and defend their network and computers against cyber-attacks. Using the same systems that professional network administrators train and certify on, these exceptional students exercise their impressive skills while learning teamwork, cooperation in a workplace-like environment, and leadership in a competitive environment. At the same time, they are challenged to a wide variety of cryography and computer forensics problems ranging from decrypting messages to recovering damaged files. The competition fosters a spirit of teamwork, ethical behavior, and effective communication both within and across teams.

The finalists in March 15 competition represent the best of almost 30 individual teams from California.

Todd Gloria, former interim mayor of San Diego, and San Diego City Council President, announced the first, second, third place awards.
