This year’s National Cyber Security Awareness Forensic Challenge competition simulated a phishing attack and infection similar to those commonly found throughout the IT world and observed at Ames. Code TI’s Lester Barrow’s entry responding to the challenge demonstrated excellent IT awareness and follow through of security protocols, taking first place in the competition.
BACKGROUND: Each year, the National Cyber Security Awareness Forensic Challenge competition tests Ames IT employees on IT security threats they are likely to come across. Reviewing Ames responses, results showed that Ames is better prepared to fend-off these attacks directly due to the diligence of the IT staff and individuals like Lester Barrows.
