Last week, at Montgomery College in Maryland, 40 young hackers sat rapt at their computers and smartphones, digging their way through a cyber mystery. Despite their proximity to the nation’s capital, their work wasn’t a matter of national security—rather, this cadre was the first group of students to participate in a local spinoff of the NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering’s acclaimed Cyber Security Awareness Week (CSAW) games.
CSAW is the largest student cyber security event in the world, with more than 18,000 students ranging from high school to graduate level participating in the preliminaries.
