DoD Cyber Crime Center
The Defense Cyber Crime Center, or DC3, is a Department of Defense organization run by the Air Force Office of Special Investigations. The center consists of four divisions:
- Defense Computer Forensics Lab
- Defense Computer Investigations Training Academy
- Defense Cyber Crime Institute
- Futures Exploration
The DC3 sponsors an annual conference, the DoD Cybercrime Conference. The last conference was held in January 2007 in St. Louis, MO.
In 2006 the DC3 ran a Digital Forensics Challenge. At the 2007 DoD Cybercrime conference, the DC3 announced plans to make the challenge an annual event.
The DC3 was formed in 2001 when the newly created DCCI was merged with the existing DCFL and DCITA (at the time called the Defense Computer Investigations Training Program (DCITP).
