The Cipher Tech Challenge is an online cybersecurity challenge for students and professionals interested in a career in forensic software development. Over the course of a 2-week period, you will encounter challenges that will have you perform the same tasks that forensic software developers do every day. Questions will prompt for free response (e.g. submit an attacker IP address or identify the attacker’s name) and challenge your critical thinking skills.
