The event, which ran from 28 February to 3 March and was delivered in coalition with the US Air Force Research Laboratory, tests and develops individual cyber skills through a series of enjoyable and challenging scenarios. This year, teams from the Royal Navy, Army, RAF and Civil Service rose to the challenge, learning new skills while competing against each other through virtual mission planning for small-scale operations.

Wing Commander Andy Colley, Assistant Head of Delivery at the Defence Cyber Academy, said:

“We were delighted to host this year’s cyber challenge and very grateful to our US colleagues for coming here to help us run it. The purpose of the challenge is to test the skills of our cyber specialists, but also to give those that aren’t specialists an opportunity to develop their understanding of cyber in defence. We hope that all those who attended the event departed enthused for the topic and ready to pursue a career in cyber.”

Congratulations to the 2022 ISCDNC winners – the RAF.
