Chapter Attends CERTS 2020 Capture the Flag Competition

The chapter attended the Cyber Education, Research, and Training Symposium (CERTS) Military/Collegiate Capture the Flag (CTF) Competition award event. The CTF is a four-hour, Jeopardy-style competition for aspiring and seasoned cyber and cybersecurity professionals. This competition is a learning tool that will measure the participant's current familiarity with various cybersecurity topics and will further sharpen the tools they have learned through education, training or self-learning. The CTF provides opportunities to share ideas amongst team members and with other teams, promoting the concept of continual learning for the soldiers and students. The Jeopardy-style CTF is similar to the actual Jeopardy game. The categories are cryptography, steganography, physical security, reverse engineering, forensics, networking and scanning.
