The Pacific Rim Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition (PRCCDC) was originally created out of a need for students trained in Information Assurance. Informal games were held at Camp Murray, and the first competition took place on the Microsoft Campus. In 2009, the PRCCDC officially became one of the ten regions of the National Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition (NCCDC). The competition is open to two-year and four-year colleges and universities. Each team consists of eight students, with a cap of two graduate students per team. Schools may enter teams per the national guidelines. The teams competing this year are:
