CyberForce 2023 - Results
Two DU Teams Conquer the Challenge
Two teams from DU competed in CyberForce this past weekend (November 4 and 5, 2023) in St. Charles, IL. By all indications it was a great event, and we thank the sponsors and Department of Energy for putting together such a great competition.
Here’s an image of all our DU compatriots at the event
Team 1 members (no particular order):
- Nidhi Madabushi

Team 2 members (no particular order):

Both teams performed well, but it was a fierce competition! Showing their experience, Team #1 was the only team in the entire competition to get a perfect score on the C-Suite video and security documentation portion of the competition. Congratulations! Communicating the importance of cybersecurity best practices to management and C-level executives is a really important skill, so this is quite an achievement.
