Students from our Digital Forensics and Cyber Security degree programme have bagged the top prize at the 6th Cyber Security Challenge held as part of this year's IRISSCERT's annual Conference on Cybercrime.
The ITB team held off some serious competition from other professional Irish and international teams as well as teams from other colleges.



The goal of the Cyber Security Challenge is to identify Ireland's top cyber security experts.
The challenge sees teams competing against each other in a controlled environment to see who will be the first to exploit weaknesses in a number of systems and declare victory.
The purpose of the competition is to demonstrate how attackers gain access to vulnerable systems and how to prevent such attacks from impacting the networks.



This year's challenge was run by the Irish Honeynet Chapter .
The Honeynet Project is a leading international non-profit security research organization, dedicated to investigating the latest attacks and developing open source security tools to improve Internet security.



This years' Cyber Crime Conference was held on Thursday the 20th of Nov in the D4Berkley Court Hotel, Ballsbridge Dublin.
Congratulations to team ITBPrime on your victory.

"Basically the course covers everything to do with digital and online media. I had it as a hobby in sixth year but when I came here I learned so much more."
