The purpose of the UNCW Cyber Defense Club is twofold. First, it aims to supplement the Information Security curriculum and provide students with a venue in which to learn the critical knowledge and skills needed to administer and defend computer networks and systems. Second, UNCW Cyber Defense Club competes in the Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition (CCDC) and National Cyber League (NCL) Games to give members the opportunity to apply the theory and skills that they have acquired.

More information about the club including how to sign up to receive information about future meetings can be found on:
