West Point cadets are competing against other service academies this week in an annual cyber-defense exercise.

Teams at the military academies will be defending their computer networks against attacks orchestrated by National Security Agency and military officials. The 17th annual Cyber Defense Exercise runs through Friday. U.S. Military Academy cadets won the trophy last year for putting up the best cyber-defenses.
