The U.S. Military Academy has won a cyber-warfare competition among the five U.S. service academies.

A team of caffeine-fueled cadets is spending long days this week in a computer lab trying to fend off threats cooked up by experts at the National Security Agency.

Not only does the exercise dovetail into the military’s broader strategy of staying ahead of the curve in computer operations, but the West Point cadets relish the chance to test their computer skills against their peers.
