Annual Cyber Security & Forensics Competition

The annual Cyber Security & Forensics Competition started in 2012, and provides a friendly competitive environment for hands-on application/demonstration of students’ skills. RCC hosted the 2016 event, the first year that phone forensics was included. The 5-hour competition included  network forensics, full computer investigations and reporting, and a trivia contest. Trivia questions encompassed computer forensic laws, concepts, and steps in processing cybercrime evidence. Next year's competition will be hosted at Westchester Community College.
