Andy Rector, a digital forensics major, capped the fall semester by finishing within the top 10 percent in the world in the DC3 Digital Forensics Challenge - a 10-month international competition with civilian and corporate competitors, as well as students, that featured varying levels of digital forensics challenges. Rector placed 21st out of 317 teams, and was fourth among undergraduates, while individually representing Bloomsburg University as his own team.

The competition, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Defense, was conducted online with multi-level exercises from novice to expert to developer. Teams were asked to solve 26 scenario-based exercises through investigative forensics tools, techniques and methodologies.

Among the exercises:

  • Image hashing
  • Compound file analysis
  • Encrypted device image
  • File level encryption
  • HPA data recovery
