ISIT-DTU1 wins a second prize
The DTU prize was due to the quality of education at the university, the intensive training that both lecturers and students go through, and the experience gained in similar competitions, at home and abroad.
“The 2023 ASEAN Student Information Security contest was aimed at both domestic and other ASEAN institutions strong in IT, making the level of competition in each round tense and sometimes fierce,” said Dau Hoang Tai, from the DTU International School. “The questions are tough, so getting to the finals required the maximum amount of effort and concentration of all team members. Consequentially, we learned many important lessons and raised our skill levels, which we’ll be able to use in our future careers.”
The awards ceremony of the 2023 ASEAN Student Information Security contest was scheduled to be part of this year’s Vietnam Information Security Day, held by VNISA at the end of November.
Four prize-winning teams from the 2023 ASEAN Student Information Security then competed in the ASEAN Cyber Shield Hacking contest in Indonesia on November 22, 2023:

- ISIT-DTU1 from DTU won second prize
- KMA.L3N0V0, hosted by the Academy of Cryptography Techniques, also came second
