Regis University to Host 14th Annual Rocky Mountain Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition

The top eight teams emerging from the first round of the Rocky Mountain Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition (RMCCDC) will converge on Regis University’s Denver Campus on March 8-9, 2024, with the hopes of one team advancing to the National Championship. Regis University hosted the 14th consecutive qualifying round for the Rocky Mountain Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition on Feb. 3. Fifteen university and college teams from four states competed to demonstrate their skills in cybersecurity.

The RMCCDC is a unique challenge, as the top-performing teams will assume the role of a security operations team defending a fictitious company against a team of up to 20 professional ethical hackers. This competition emphasizes the operational aspect of managing and safeguarding a "commercial" network infrastructure while preserving core business competencies.

The top eight teams advancing to the RMCCDC are:

  • BYU
  • Southern Utah University
  • Colorado School of Mines
  • University of Colorado Boulder
  • United States Air Force Academy
  • BYU Idaho
  • Utah Valley University
  • University of Colorado, Colorado Springs


The winner of the RMCCDC will advance and represent the Rocky Mountain Region at the National Championship to be held on April 25 -27, 2024.

Regis wishes to congratulate the top finalists as well as all the competing universities and colleges on a job well done. 

Regis University, Anderson College of Business and Computing, gives a very special thanks to all our sponsors listed below. Without their generous support, this event would not be possible.
