- Second place: shared by Luis J. Diaz-Sanchez and James Gill, both from Ivy Tech Columbus, split a $500 scholarship
- Third place: Jason Reese, Evansville Campus, $250 Circle of Ivy Scholarship
The competition consisted of a two-hour game in which participants validated their skills finding and exploiting web applications vulnerabilities, correlating security events from log entries, and uncovering secret messages transmitted over the network.” These are the types of projects they will work on upon graduating and working in the Cyber Security field.
Scholarships were provided by the Ivy Tech Evansville and Columbus Foundations.
