WEST POINT, N.Y. — Some West Point cadets will be logging a lot of hours at computer terminals this week for a cyber-competition with the other service academies.

The 13th annual Cyber Defense Exercise runs Monday through Friday. Established in 2001 by the National Security Agency, the competition is designed to teach cadets how to protect and defend the nation’s information systems.

Cadets have to protect their network against attacks orchestrated by National Security Agency and Defense Department teams.

The winning team gets the National Security Agency-Director’s Trophy. The Air Force team won last year.

West Point has won six times.
