Team ICF routed eight teams of cyber sleuths from all over the country to win the gold medal at Hacker Halted 2011, held in Miami, Florida in late October. The win earned them the berth as the USA team in the Global Cyberlympics World Championship to be contested in March 2012.
Three members --Mark Reinsfelder of Rosedale, Md., Matt Wines of Jarrettsville, Md., and Justin Wray of York, Pennsylvania (team captain)-- are recent students in the Community College of Baltimore County’s Network Technology program. The other members of Team ICF are Benjamin Heise of Aberdeen, Md., who is a current student at UMUC, Steve Collman of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, a graduate of the CHI Institute in Pennsylvania and Jesse Hudlow of Adelphi, Md., a graduate of Towson University. All are employed as cyber security professionals at the Baltimore office of ICF International.
Their win in the North American Cyberlympics competition came on the heels of another big win. Just days prior, Team ICF had competed and won in the professional category in the Maryland Cyber Challenge and Conference (MDC3), held at the Baltimore Convention Center.
During MDC3, Team ICF were the first team to successfully penetrate all 11 sites that Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) had created for the competition. As the team was crossing the stage to accept their prizes at MDC3, they learned that they had been invited to Miami to compete in the North American Championship Cyberlympics hosted at Hacker Halted 2011.
Another CCBC Network Technology graduate, Dennis Hayden, was on the Towson University team that won in the college category at MDC3.
