The Digital Forensics Challenge ends on November 2nd, 2011!
The DOD Cyber Crime Center (DC3) is sponsoring their annual Digital Forensics Challenge, and if you submit your solutions by Oct. 2, you’ll receive a 5 percent bonus to your total points score. If you can’t make the October deadline, no worries; just make sure to have your solutions in by Nov. 2.
The challenge is open to individuals or teams of up to four people, and is scored based on total points accumulated. There are 23 individual scenario-based, progressive-level exercises to work though with tasks like “windows registry analysis” on the easy end, and “encrypted drive recover” on the hard end. There are some great prizes available including trips to the 2012 DOD Cyber Crime Conference, the Hacker Halted Conference, courseware, memberships to professional organizations and Dell Streak 7 tablets.

I’m excited to announce that registration is now open for the 10th Annual Department of Defense Cyber Crime Conference and Exposition 25-28 January 2011 (pre-conference training 21-24 January 2011). This year, we have relocated from St. Louis, MO, to a hopefully warmer Atlanta, GA, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Downtown Atlanta. City Lights and Southern Nights, Atlanta is certainly a change from snowy St. Louis!
This year’s conference theme, “Cyber Hunters: Predators and Prey…,” explores the ever-increasing ways criminals prey on personal and institutional security and how individuals and organizations can combat and prevent these threats. Come learn from the experts about the most sophisticated tools and techniques available for exposing and preventing cyber crime and how investigators can better hunt down the predators. We’ll also export a 250-300 node network and provide over a dozen different hands-on digital forensics courses to help you make sure you’re the predator and not the prey.
I encourage you to register and attend the 10th Annual DoD Cyber Crime Conference. This is the only program that brings together legal, information technology, investigative and forensic personnel for an open and interactive forum to facilitate information sharing and team building on issues facing the Department of Defense, as well as State and Federal Governments within the cyber crime arena. Visit http://www.DoDCyberCrime.com to register today!
See you in Atlanta! In the meantime, check out this shout-out from Sean Murray, cast member on NCIS.
