Merritt College is gearing up for 3rd year of competition at the National Cyber League Competition. NCL provides a cybersecurity training ground in a high-fidelity simulation game environment that requires participants to play individually during Fall Regular Season and in teams during Fall Postseason Games.
Merritt College Cybersecurity students have participated the past two years with great results and success. In 2015, Merritt student s won second place, beating out 125 other colleges and universities.
Quotes from Team:
- Sandy Keh: “It is exciting to begin another year of competition in the National Cyber League. This year we have a record, 37 students willing to participate and we hope to be ready for the challenge ahead.”
- Norman Weekes: “Our success in the NCL is a testament to how lucky we are to be taught by teachers who have a long track record in the infosec business. In class and the NCL, we have learned how to tackle new problems as a team, in a short amount of time.”
The Applications and Infrastructure Security program is in its third year, is a fully accredited two-year degree program that is the result of a partnership with Merritt College and the Consortium of Information Systems Executives (CISE). The program is a huge win in working to solve the cybersecurity crisis and has the support of Congressman Ro Khanna. Our objective is to place graduated (and soon-to-be-graduated) students within companies in the Silicon Valley. We’re looking for companies that are progressive and innovative in their approach to solving the cybersecurity issue.
We have students available for full-time and internship positions, and to streamline the hiring process we’re happy to announce that their resumes are available now at Jobvite.
Please contact me and I will put you in touch with students.
