WEST POINT, N.Y. (AP) - A team of West Point cadets will take part in an annual cyber-defense exercise with other service academies this month.

U.S. Military Academy team members will defend their title as they compete against four other service academies beginning April 13. The 15th annual Cyber Defense Exercise runs through April 17.

The academy teams must defend their computer networks against sophisticated attacks orchestrated by employees of the National Security Agency and the Department of Defense. The team that mounts the best defense wins the exercise.

West Point won for a seventh time last year.
