Baker's classes are great, but my time and experience on Baker College's CCDN (Collegiate Cyber Defense Network) and CCDC (Collegiate Cyber Defense Competitions) teams escalated my skills to an entirely other level. The experience puts you in real-world information security situations, with extreme time-based challenges, all while a group of professional Red Team hackers are trying to penetrate and sabotage the network. I didn't know it at the time, but this is exactly what students can expect to encounter in the real-world, with just as much stress and pressure as the competitions. The best part? Because I had that experience, I was already prepared to excel. Without my time and experience at Baker College, I would not be where I am today.
