UK student competition: Win free training on "Investigating Connection Records" course

UK students - Win a free* place on the "Investigating Connection Records and Introduction to Cell Site Analysis" Training Course in Birmingham (UK), 23rd – 24th August 2010 provided by Sam Raincock Consultancy.

To enter you MUST be a current UK student studying for a BSc, MSc or PhD in a computer science, information security, engineering or computer forensics discipline. You must not be in full or part time employment in a professional role or have obtained a job offer in such a role.

Competition Details

As a telecommunications and computing forensic specialist, one of the biggest challenges is to learn how to write simply and succinctly so your reports/articles can be understood by all.

With this in mind, to enter you need to prepare an article, no more than 1,000 words, discussing one of the following topic areas:

- Mobile telephone examination methodology.
- Testing forensic tools.
- Encrypting confidential data.
- Investigating Internet activity on a computer.
- Social engineering and information security.

You may provide a summary of the topic area or select a sub-topic on which to concentrate your article. The article should be in a language and style suitable for a non-technical layperson. Your chosen topic should not discuss software products and should be entirely your own work. Articles containing information copied from other sources and not appropriately cited will be instantly disqualified.

The article will be assessed by Samantha Raincock for technical accuracy, readability, structure and the general chosen topic area. One overall winner will be selected and the author will receive the training prize as well as their article being published on Sam Raincock Consultancy’s website. All decisions are final.

Closing date for submission is by 12:00 (noon) BST on 16th August 2010. The article should be emailed to in Word format.

* One free training place is available. Recent graduates (2010) without a job offer may apply. The prize will include two days of training and all training materials. It does not include accommodation, subsistence or travel costs. The prize is non-transferable and is only valid for the investigating connection records training course on 23rd – 24th August 2010 in Birmingham. There is no alternative prize. You will need to provide proof of your student status and your identity. In the unlikely event the training course is cancelled the prize will become null and void and SRC will not be responsible for any costs incurred.
