After a close six hours of competing, the Cyber Defense Team kept its lead to win first place at this year's panoply competition. The competition consists of intense penetration testing on a network of 50 servers. Points are awarded by discovering vulnerabilities that allow teams to plant ownership flags and fix relevant network services. High scores are maintained by defending servers from other teams.

The cooperative effort of the entire team paid off in preparing for this competition. Additionally, a special thanks goes out to last year's competitors from TAMUCC who helped contribute their knowledge to the team.
