Melbourne Polytechnic Cyber Security students topped the TAFECyber 2022 National Cyber Challenge

The cybersecurity students from Melbourne Polytechnic dominated the latest TAFECyber National Cyber Challenge, winning 2 spots among top 10 and besting other TAFE teams from all around Australia.

Two of Melbourne Polytechnic students’ teams made it to the top 10, with "nCrypt" taking the second spot and "Sierra Spiders" in the eighth place. Another team from Melbourne Polytechnic, "Craig Was Busy" demonstrated courage and gave their best in the challenge. Each team was awarded a Certificate of Completion in recognition of completing the TAFECyber Incident Response Challenge – Student Edition. Melbourne Polytechnic staff member Sumeet Yadav also contributed as a panel judge.

The competition was closely contested to the very end, with outstanding individual and team performances. It involved around 20 teams of students with Certificate IV in Cyber Security and Advanced Diploma of Cyber Security qualifications from ten different TAFE Institutions in Australia. Retrospect Lab hosted the TAFECyber 2022 National Cyber Challenge, also known as the Incident Response Challenge. The national competition provided an excellent opportunity for students to demonstrate critical and in-demand cyber skills gained through specialised training. Cyber security challenges are a fun way for learners to develop and test their practical skills and to provide critical cyber skills training for the growing sector.

Cyber security is the most in-demand and globally employable field, and Melbourne Polytechnic offers cyber security and IT courses to help students develop the skills required to protect organisations from data breaches and malicious cyber-attacks.

The members of Melbourne Polytechnic student teams were:

Team: nCrypt (2nd Place)

Team: Sierra Spider (8th Place)

Team: Craig Was Busy
