I know I haven’t blogged in a while, but that’s because on the background I am super busy developing CIPP(https://cipp.app) and having a new session of the CyberDrainCTF!
So what IS the event exactly?
A Capture-the-Flag event is (normally) a cybersecurity competition that is designed to teach and test a variety of different computer skills, The CyberDrain CTF differs here because we don’t teach and test security skills, but system administration and engineering.
The goal of a competition like this is to learn, so you’re expected to research and use the internet during the competition to figure out how to solve the challenges. There are challenges of each level so have all your techs give it a try, it doesn’t matter if you’re just starting or have been in the market for 50 years.
When does it start?
The event starts February 28th at 13:00 (Central European time) and lasts until 14th of March 13:00. To find what that is in your local time zone, click here: https://www.thetimezoneconverter.com/
But what’s in it for me?
To make sure this event is interesting for everyone u/Lime-TeGek did his best to gather sponsors so we could hand out awards, and give back to our community that has supported us for so long.
