At the ElleHacks 2020 hosted by York University from 31 January - 2 February, CEG3 Yeo Su Yia, Denise and her fellow NOC Toronto teammates (from Information Security and Business) won the Royal Bank of Canada's Most Innovative Award. This largest award at the hackathon came with a 2000CAD cash prize and potential opportunities for interaction, internship and work at the Royal Bank of Canada.

The team came up with a B2B solution involving a browser extension, Ph!sh, that uses a convolution neural network to proactively check if a website a user is visiting, is a phishing attempt. Current solutions require a user's information to be compromised and for the URL to be reported, before others can be protected while the team's solution detects a phishing attempt in real-time by identifying visual similarities before checking against the URL. Congrats to Denise and her teammates!
