On April 24, River East Collegiate won the 2019 Canadian Cyber Defense Challenge against 28 other Canadian high school teams and three post-secondary teams! This is the second year in a row that they've come out on top. Way to go!
Each team was made up of 4–5 students who spent the day combatting cyber attacks against a fictitious company. In addition to showing off their technical skills working with different operating systems, the students had to summarize their findings and report to the fictitious company's CEO to make recommendations to avoid future attacks.
