British Amateur Named World's Top Civilian Cyber Defender in Hacking Challenge

Chris Doman,a 26 year old man from Essex was ranked as the highest civilian and ranked second in the 2012 Digital Forensics Challenge organized by the U.S. Department of Defense Cyber Crime Centre.He beat 2000 other defenders from 53 countries.The only place where he lost is where he had to face a professional team. UK provided the more participants than other countries.This competition,which is organized by the US Department of Defense Cyber Crime Center is considered as the toughest forensic competition in the world.
Chris Doman said:
'It’s a year-long competition but I only decided to enter a month before it closed so time was a bit of an issue,
'I looked through all 34 challenges and wrote a plan of how to do them all and how long it would take.
'It’s all certainly possible to solve but it’s not easy and you have to think carefully about the time required for each challenge.
'Security has always been an interest. At school I would publish computer security and operating system design tutorials. However setting up my own company left me with less time to pursue this interest.
'The Cyber Security Challenge has certainly reignited my love for cyber security and problem solving. I did better than I expected, and it’s given me a boost to start applying for work in this field

This success of Chris has booked him a place to take part in the next upcoming competition which will be organized by Cyber Security Challenge UK, the Sophos Malware Hunt in January.
