Come listen to the visions and ideas of some of the best and brightest minds in the security community.

Learn from the best with a two day hands-on training. These trainings are of a DefCon caliber, right here in Madison!
CCDC is a two day Network Security event. This is the first competition that specifically focuses on the operational aspect of managing, securing, and defending a "commercial" network infrastructure. Students get a chance to test their knowledge by building, protecting, and maintaining a realistic network and operations environment. Participating teams will be required to demonstrate their ability to withstand and defend against real-time network security attacks.
The winning team recieves an all expense paid trip to the national competition in San Antonio, Texas!
CCDC provides a unique opportunity for students to gain realistic defensive network security skills that closely simulate the operational challenges they will face as they enter the job market.
Teams are encouraged (but not required) to bring a Team Advisor. Advisors are not allowed to participate in the competition.
Dates: March 31 - April 1
CCDC will begin at 4:00PM on March 31, and continue the morning of April 1, finishing before the trainings begin.
