During the competition, 15 teams spent nine hours as network defenders and administrators. In addition to fending off a team of skilled attackers, they are also tasked with maintaining business operations and dealing with requests from management. This was UVU’s first time entering this competition. The winning team included Austin Larsen, Mike Weaver, Daniel Dayley and Chris Hallstrom.
