Capture the Flag (CTF) events are friendly competitions where Digital Forensics and Infosec professionals can hone and showcase their skills but they can also be formidable and intimidating challenges to those who are early in their career. If you have never participated in Capture the Flag events because you don’t yet know what CTF are, where they are offered, or you believe you don’t yet have the experience or skills to participate then this is for you.

The session will start by dispelling some myths about the competitions and competitors. Next, I will share how I got started and why I believe I waited too long to test my skills in a competitive environment. I will also share how you can prepare yourself and your toolbox for a CTF event and what to expect during the competition. Finally, the session will conclude with an overview of why participating in CTF will benefit you regardless of your career level.
