DSU graduate student team earns top honor from Department of Defense

A graduate team from DSU, supervised by DSU professor Dr. Michael Tu, placed first in the US Graduate Team division of the 2011 Department of Defense Cyber Crime Center (DC3) international competition.

The competition tests skills in the area of digital forensic science. The DC3 challenge is an online competition which requires participants to perform a series of tasks throughout the year, challenging participants to discover information deleted, encrypted, encoded or hidden by using other sophisticated mechanisms in digital media. The competition consists of challenge questions with or without known solutions.

The DSU team members were awarded with an expenses paid trip to the 2012 Department of Defense Cyber Crime Conference January 20th - 27th in Atlanta, Ga., where the team was formally recognized.

The DSU graduate team is led by Brian Edwards. For more details, please refer to http://dc3.mil/challenge/2011/stats/winners.php
