Alex Larkin. Computer Science undergrad. Outstanding achievement.
Alex placed 36th out of 3,350 students/players in the 2018 National Cyber League (NCL) cyber competition! CS Assistant Professor, Bo Chen, is the faculty coach.
The NCL was founded in May 2011 to provide an ongoing virtual training ground for collegiate students to develop, practice, and validate their cybersecurity skills. It is a defensive and offensive puzzle-based, capture-the-flag style cybersecurity competition. Its virtual training ground helps high school and college students prepare and test themselves against cybersecurity challenges that they will likely face in the workforce. All participants play the games simultaneously during Preseason, Regular Season and Postseason.
