A few other students also took part in the 3rd Singapore Cyber Conquest (SCC) which has become part of the GovWare over the past few years. This year SCC was jointly hosted by The Ministry of Home Affairs and Image-Engine in partnership with SYPRIS Pte Ltd and PCS Security Pte Ltd.

There are two teams in the tournament, namely Chua Wei Kiat and Edmund Teo as well as Nikolas Tay and Cheong Ren Hann (ill). With this being Nikolas's first ever competition experience he was rather excited and expressed strong interest in participating more of such CTF competitions in future.

Last but not least some other DISM students including alumni attended conference talks as well as visited exhibition booths and were thus able to learn quite a bit from the professionals and experts in the industry.
