Capture the Flag
Capture the Flag for All Experience Levels
CTF includes challenges for all skill levels. It’s an excellent event for honing your current arsenal of hacking skills or for taking home some new ones. This event will connect you with other cyber-minded peeps and you’ll have a blast with real-life hacking!
A capture the flag is an event where individuals and teams compete against each other. In a way, it’s a cybersecurity game full of puzzles to solve. There are four different domains; Networks, AppSec, Python, and Cryptography. Within those domains, there are also multiple levels which build off of each other and get progressively harder. In order to get through Level 2, you’ll need information from Level 1, and so on. The first level is the easiest level and then the levels get progressively harder as you go. Similar to golf, you can compete against yourself, or other participants in the room.
Join us for snacks, drinks, and cybersecurity fun! Bring a friend and snag some swag!

Capture the Flag has something for everyone! Beginner friendly levels if you’re new to CTF through levels that will challenge the most seasoned professionals.
