Back again for 2016: Annual International Invitation Cyber Competition
Don’t miss out on the annual international, multi-team, remote Capture the Flag exercise designed to challenge cyber security professionals in a real time, force on force setting. For six hours during the Summit teams will compete for control of elements of infrastructure by planting and maintaining an encrypted beacon on servers, routers, or workstations. The team controlling the most infrastructure elements, in other words, having the most active beacons, by the end of the exercise wins. Participating teams will operate from their own location and access the exercise through the Cyber Range. Each team will attempt to penetrate and control elements of critical infrastructure within the MCR’s training environment, called Alphaville.
