First day of the CDDC Competition

The Cyber Defenders Discovery Camp kicked off with a pre-camp briefing on 28 May 2012, where participants were briefed on the details of the camp and competition. Organised by DSTA (Defence Science & Technology Agency), this inaugural camp which lasts from 4th June to 7th June aims to develop the brightest young talents in cyber defence.

Open to all full-time students in local junior colleges (JC), Integrated Programme (IP) Year 5 and 6, local polytechnics and universities, the camp take participants through an exhilarating four-day journey where they learn the techniques in cyber defence before pitting their skills against one another in a competition.

DISM has sent in 3 teams made of year 2 and 3 students into the IHL (polytechnic and university) category. After the first two days of training, which our students were able to handle with ease thanks to the solid foundations built in the DISM course, the competition kicked start.

After one entire day of intensive and exciting action, our teams which were named Orion, Lynx and Octans managed to grab two seats of the top three ranking. There will still be half a day more and just as the old saying goes: "It ain't over till the fat lady sings", let us wish good luck to our DISM representatives and hope they can keep up their good job!

More photos and details will be brought to you at a later time.
