Lewis Students Place in Top 5 of National Cyberforce Competition

Published: July 26, 2021.

Senior Cybersecurity Major Jocelyn Murray of Wakefield, Mass., placed third and Ryan Syed, a junior from Romeoville double majoring in Computer Science and Mathematics, placed fifth out of over 330 competitors in the US Department of Energy's Conquer the Hill Adventure Edition Cyberforce Competition  July 16 - 18.

The competition was a virtual, individual contest in which participants were presented with anomalies (i.e. things that raise suspicion of an attack) and had to formulate ways to identify and address their causes. Participants received the anomalies earlier in the week and then had time to prepare their responses. The competitors who correctly responded to the most scenarios rose to the top of the rankings.
