2016 MACCDC Scenario

This year’s teams will compete in Operation Cyber Bailout. The Blue Teams will manage and secure a financial system that has come under attack by cyber terrorists.

The terrorists represent a rogue nation bent on the collapse of the fictitious country of Hackistan’s financial system. It will be up to the eight teams to manage and secure their regional systems in order to restore order to Hackistan’s economy.

MACCDC—presented by the National CyberWatch Center—is in its eleventh year of providing a unique experience for college and university students to test their cybersecurity knowledge and skills in a competitive environment. MACCDC takes great pride in being one of the premier events of this type in the United States. This year more than 300 students will compete for an opportunity to be one of the ten teams that advance to the regional finals, which will be held at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel, Maryland, on March 31–April 2, 2016. The winner of the regional event will represent the Mid-Atlantic region at the National CCDC in San Antonio, Texas, on April 22–24, 2016.
