ONG-ISAC Booz Allen Hamilton – Kaizen Capture the Flag

ONG-ISAC | Booz Allen Virtual CTF Exercises

Jeopardy Scenario (Beginner-Intermediate) – June 8, 2021

The ONG-ISAC partnered with Booz Allen Hamilton to offer members two virtual Jeopardy style Capture-the-Flag (CTF) exercises – a beginner-intermediate scenario and an intermediate-advanced scenario that can be played as a complementary series or attended as standalone events.

The half-day (4 hour) virtual CTF exercise is dynamic and complex with multi-layered, non-obvious vulnerabilities. They are designed to help cybersecurity professionals apply their skills in new and creative ways through real-world challenges.

Who Should Play?

Whether you are an analyst looking to build skills across a variety of competencies like reverse-engineering, networking, forensics, and exploitation; or an information security team seeking ways to enhance roles and relationships through collaboration, these CTF exercise provide an opportunity to:

  • Develop technical skills alongside peers and industry experts
  • Learn out-of-the-box approaches to access networks and systems and fix vulnerabilities
  • Understand offensive methodologies, tools, and techniques

Members were able to register as individuals or play as a team in this jeopardy style event. Challenges were organized into difficulty and categories and featured many security disciplines – forensics, offensive, reversing and crypto challenges. Participants engaged in a competitive, yet educational environment with leaderboards to track performance and moderators to guide problem solving activities.
