Capture The Flag

We invite you to join us for the Capture The Flag – Advanced Threats game that will allow participants to gain hands-on experience with hacking networks and systems, as well as investigating breaches using Cisco Incident Response toolset. During the game, participants will be able to go through a series of engaging Red Team and Blue Team activities with the goal of obtaining an in-depth understanding of how attackers operate, how to better investigate incidents, and how to defend against them. During the game, you will be provided with challenges, and you will receive points when you solve them (counted towards small goodies for the winners). Example challenges will include performing reconnaissance, searching for vulnerabilities, exploiting systems, as well as sifting through operating system files and logs to find hidden secrets.


Participants will be able to choose any one or more challenges from the provided set based on the interest. Simply walk-in, pick up the available seat and start playing, no bookings required.
