EPIC’s annual competition previously focused exclusively on the development of software applications to address specific and relatively narrow national security technology challenges. With the increasing severity, complexity, and frequency of state and non-state cyberattacks to steal, malignly influence, and damage public and private sector targets, the EPIC Challenge has broadened the aperture of acceptable solutions to include not only custom software applications, but also demonstrations of security techniques and digital forensics as described below. Winners will be announced during the in-person Intelligence and National Security Summit, which begins at 10:00 a.m. EDT on Thursday, September 15.
