More than 200 Iowa State University students will spend a Saturday beating back eight hours of computer attacks.

It’s the latest edition of the annual Cyber Defense Competitions at Iowa State. It will run from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Sept. 21 on the first floor of Coover Hall. The event is free and open to the public.

It will be the largest single Cyber Defense Competition ever on a university campus, according to Doug Jacobson, University Professor of electrical and computer engineering and one of the contest’s organizers. The previous record at Iowa State was nearly 150 students who competed last year.
