Aug 2022 – Capture The Flag

Its here!  The August CTF is finally here.  What is a CTF?  Well, I’m so glad you asked.  A CTF or Capture the Flag is kind of a computer security competition where you challenge yourself to get past hacking exercises to “capture a flag”.  This will be an interactive opportunity open to ANYONE!  Whether you’re new to IT Security and wanna learn more or a seasoned Pentester who wants to win it all, this event is for you.  If you’re new to IT Security and are concerned about what lies ahead don’t fret, we will have several veteran IT Security professionals available for consultation if you need assistance.  So come on out and let’s have some fun and learn a little while we’re at it. 

We understand that sometimes things don’t work out and you can’t make it in person so we are offering this as a virtual event as well.  The CTF will be publicly available via the web, however you must be at the event location to win prizes.
