Tarlogic celebrates Halloween by organizing a Capture the Flag competition open to students

Tarlogic has organised a Capture the Flag competition

Undergraduate, Master’s or PhD students interested in the field of cybersecurity can enter this Capture the Flag competition and win prizes

Not everything in this life is going to be work-related. At Tarlogic Security, we are happy to launch initiatives that allow us to go off script, create synergies and strengthen our community. That’s why we have organized together with Hack the Box a Capture the Flag (CTF) competition that will start on October 31, and that will allow us to celebrate Halloween in style.

For two days, undergraduate, master’s, or doctoral students interested in cybersecurity will face our CTF Hack or Threat online. A competition made up of 10 challenges, divided into seven categories, that will surprise them and challenge their knowledge and skills.

Participants can compete in teams of up to four to beat their rivals and win succulent prizes.

The event, which is entirely free of charge, will begin on Tuesday, October 31 at 3 p.m. and end 48 hours later, on Thursday, November 2 at 3 p.m.

Capture the Flag is an amusing competition that has become popular in cybersecurity. It allows participants to show off their talents and measure themselves against rivals who force them to be ingenious and skillful in hacking.

Share, learn, compete… and have fun!

This action is part of Tarlogic’s commitment to talent, innovation and the development of activities that build a stronger, more united, prepared cybersecurity community where tomorrow’s cybersecurity professionals feel welcome.

Our Capture the Flag Hack or Threat aims to offer all students attracted to the cybersecurity industry the opportunity to enter this exciting world, display their talent, test their expertise, learn to work in teams and enrich themselves with the knowledge of other peers. But above all, we want participants to have a great time competing with… or against their friends.
