First National Cybersecurity Championship of Ecuador Is a Success

In August, six chapter members arranged to participate in the First National Cybersecurity Championship of Ecuador. After nearly 60 days of dedication, arduous study and responsible and harmonious volunteering, this multidisciplinary group showed courage, synergy, unity and passion.

In October, the inauguration was celebrated. The team was named AFCEA Ecuador and represented by three women-Carol Almeida, Mercy Anchundia and Salome Mantilla-and three gentlemen-Joel Quilligana, Stalin Mina and Byron Illapa. This team of excellent professionals was comprised of great human beings with wisdom, patience and camaraderie. They reaped what they sowed, reaching seventh place out of 44 teams nationally.

In November, the closing of the First National Cybersecurity Championship was held in a virtual format. The winners were awarded in the following categories: undergraduate and graduate; recognition of teams in CTF and ON FIRE modality; individual recognitions to cyber warriors and better performance; and special recognitions to teams with girl power and revelation. The chapter congratulates the cybersecurity team that received the certificate of 'Best Team with Female Power' as the chapter highlights the three Women in AFCEA Ecuador for demonstrating professionalism and raising the name of AFCEA International.
