    National CCDC: April 23-25, 2021 

    The MACCDC provides hands-on application of information security skills to enhance students’ understanding of both theory and practice. The MACCDC fulfills the same role as a capstone project in a traditional cybersecurity academic program (i.e., projects that allow students to synthesize and integrate knowledge acquired through course work and other learning experiences into a project usually conducted in a workplace). Lastly, the MACCDC combines legal, ethical, forensics, and technical components while emphasizing a team approach.
