Charley outline that "Being involved with the Cipher Cracking challenge was amazing, and has stimulated my interest in investigating ciphers and codes.  It was great too, to apply many of the techniques that we learnt on the MSc into these challenges. I hope to now continue towards a PhD in this area, and investigate new methods of detecting zero-day malware."
