Capture the Flag with BAE Systems Applied Intelligence

Saturday 27th January, 2018 at 10:00 in DPO, CUED

There is a limit to how much can be taught in a lecture theatre. Join us this Easter term for the second ever cyber security varsity against Oxford. Challenge yourself  by working competitively with a team and find out what you can contribute to cyber security and intelligence.

BAE Systems Applied Intelligence are running a Capture the Flag event, a day of cyber security challenges and games, on Saturday 27th January 2018.

The challenges will involve breaking into vulnerable websites, cracking ciphers, forensic searches, reverse engineering and much more. No previous experience of these kinds of challenge is necessary; they are designed for students who like taking things apart and seeing how they work.

Anybody who is a member of CUES at Cambridge can sign up and play against the respective Oxford University team. There are prizes for the winning team and goodies for anyone taking part!
