Posted by Fernando.Arzola on Saturday November 7, 2015

Dr. David Ahn, Professor of Computer Science, leads first ever student cyber security team in CyberSEED 2015 Capture the Flag Challenge competition sponsored by Comcast and University of Connecticut. The Nyack team ranked 14th. About this accomplishment, Dr. Ahn states,

“This is a truly remarkable achievement by our computer science seniors and I am so proud of them. The CyberSEED 2015 was their first ever attended cyber-security competition and they ranked high among many well-known cyber-security teams around the country including many prestigious computer science schools from Ivy League and top-notch engineering institutions. The challenge set by Symantec was a very difficult one but our students were fully engaged in the challenge for two days straight from 9 am and 9 pm each day and they achieved an outstanding result! In fact, this result is an exemplary of what the Nyack College Computer Science program is about: We are small but produce highly qualified computer scientists!”
