On behalf of Columbia | SIPA and the Atlantic Council, the SIPA Digital and Cyber Group would like to extend our congratulations to this year’s winning teams for the Inaugural NY Cyber 9/12 Student Challenge.
After two days of intense competition, four teams from three universities took the top placements. The scenario for this event revolved around a terrorist group’s exploitation of flaws in critical U.S. transportation infrastructure as well as simultaneous attacks on the financial sector. The winning teams presented the most innovative and effective solutions to this major and unprecedented fictional cyber threat against the United States. As with all Cyber 9/12 competitions, those competing represent the best and the brightest new minds in cyber.
