Cybersecurity virtual contest draws participants from across the country

In September, teams from 16 high schools and two-year colleges competed in the inaugural Capture The Wu event, a two-day virtual contest in which teams solve cybersecurity challenges. Wichita State students from the Wichita State Linux User Group (WULUG) and Joe Jabara, the director of the cybersecurity program in the School of Computing, organized and ran the contest.

Winning teams in the high school division were from Shawnee Mission West High School in Overland Park, Eisenhower High School in Goddard and Tuscaloosa Academy in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, while Garden City Community College won the two-year college division.
