ACES Program staff are working remotely to protect community health. Please connect with us via phone and email.
ACES' Competition Team began in Fall 2013. The team meets once a week to learn and practice their cybersecurity skills. Some meetings are lectures lead by the team leaders, but most of them are hands-on activities and practice. The meetings focus on the offensive side of cybersecurity to complement the defensive-centered coursework provided in most cybersecurity courses. The team represents the University of Maryland in major competitions in the area, including the National Cyber League and the Maryland Cyber Challenge.

The Competition Team is open to all ACES students. No experience is necessary. 

The Competition Team gives students hands-on experience using both offensive and defensive cybersecurity skills. Learn from and with your fellow ACES peers and put your knowledge to the test. 

Contact the ACES Prorgram Coordinator to learn more about how to get involved. The weekly meeting information is shared in the ACES Monday email, so check there for where and when the next meeting is!
