UNG is #1

The University of North Georgia claimed the spot as the No. 1 cyber operations university team in the nation. 

A group of 184 UNG students spent 110 days competing in the 2019 National Security Codebreaker Challenge.

The university’s team accumulated 230,450 points, more than tripling Georgia Tech, who came in second place with 56,050 points.   

, Each UNG competitor finished at least one of the challenge’s seven tasks. 

Only 50 students out of the 531 universities and colleges that participated were able to complete all seven tasks. Thirty of those were UNG participants.  

Winning the challenge didn’t only bolster many students’ resumes, it also opened up a door of opportunities in cybersecurity.
