Cyber Defense Team.

The Cyber Defense Team focuses on sharing a wide range of computer knowledge related to operating systems, server administration, cybersecurity, and computer networking. The team also provides opportunities for social networking with students and industry personnel, helping students to prepare for the transition to industry. In the lab, students who become subject matter experts help other students who have little or no knowledge learn the concepts and applications of the field. This is done through hands-on exercises, both individual and group based. Some of the material shared includes Microsoft and Linux Server Administration, CISCO Networking, IT Security, and Oracle Database Administration. Networking with the team builds the skills and experience that enables students to compete in the National Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition and other cybersecurity competitions.

About Us

About Us.

TAMUCC Cyber Defense Team teaches offensive and defensive security tactics to students from level beginner to expert. We do this by hosting lab activities that teach us how to attack vulnerabilities in systems, and in the process talk about how we could avoid such vulnerabilities and as well go into detail of different tools that we use. In addition to this, we compete in cybersecurity events which you can learn more about below under the competition tab.
