The CIAS is hosting its annual Hivestorm defensive cyber competition on Saturday, October 17, 2020 from 10 AM to 11 PM Central (11am to Midnight EDT). Hivestorm is a collegiate-focused cyber defense competition. Teams compete by securing provided Windows and Linux based virtual machines - removing malware and other infections, correcting misconfigurations, mitigating vulnerabilities, disabling vulnerable services, and so on.

It is designed for teams of 2 to 4, is free to play, is completely virtual, and is open to as many teams as you want to field. Your team will have a 4 hour window to work on the provided virtual machines.

For more information about the competition or registering teams, please visit www.hivestorm.org.  Prizes and trophies will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place teams. Feel free to email umasscybersec@gmail.com with any questions about our teams; to hear more about other events with the Cybersecurity Club, join our mailing list and our Discord.
