Geek Seek Virtual Capture the Flag
The Canadian Centre for Cyber Security (Cyber Centre) is putting together its first fully virtual Capture the Flag (CTF). The event is in honour of Canada Day and is thus being run close to the national holiday. The flags to be captured will all have a challenge related to cyber security, programming, or data analysis.
Who can apply?: Undergraduate and graduate students from fields related to computer sciences, programming, computer networks, data analysis and manipulation, or who have an interest in cyber security. Students who have participated in previous GeekWeeks cannot participate as challenges being used are recycled from previous events. Prior experience of CTF or knowledge of cyber security is not mandatory.
In order to participate in the GeekSeek CTF, you must have the following:
- A computer to participate in the event (you may have to install a software) - A reliable internet connection to stay connected
-A valid email address in order to connect to Slack & communicate with team members
-A desire to be fully engaged and contribute to your team’s efforts.
