Our company is running a cool educational contest this summer that is worth checking out. It is a global competition intended to help build skills among young professionals and seasoned veterans in the area of cybersecurity.
This Trend Micro event, called Capture the Flag (CTF), will consist of challenges across 4 disciplines including targeted attacks, cybercrime, IoT, and SCADA. Winner gets JPY 1,000,000 (approximately US$8,700) plus much much more!!!
Trend Micro is also offering an amazing opportunity for the top 10 online qualifying teams and will cover travel expenses to Japan (up to JPY 200,000 / approximately US$1,810/ conditions apply) as well as three nights hotel accommodation. Even if you are not really interested in the prizes, this is a great opportunity for you to test your skills and learn!
With a global shortage of skilled cybersecurity experts, this is a great way for people to build their knowledge of this industry.
Think you have what it takes?
