Test your skills at hunting threats, tracking the actions of cyber-attackers, and mitigating cyber-risks.
Join the Threat Interceptors Challenge, a capture the flag (CTF) competition, and prove your threat hunting prowess.
The Threat Interceptors Challenge begins on 14 June 2021
The Threat Interceptors Challenge will consist of a threat hunting scenario with various objectives. Your challenge as a threat interceptor, should you choose to accept it, will be to understand how the attacker breached the network, tracing their nefarious activity inside the perimeter to discern potential data at risk, and mitigate the attack as quickly as possible to soften the blow to your organization’s business continuity, among other tasks.
To complete the challenge you will use Accedian’s Skylight Interceptor solution, a behavior-based intrusion detection system.
The challenge is estimated to take less than 4 hours to complete as an individual. The window to test your skills will be between 11:00 AM EDT June 14th, 2021 to 11:00 AM EDT June 16th, 2021 (48 hours). The winner will be announced live, at the Get Resilient, Stay Resilient cybersecurity seminar, following the closing of the challenge.
