Episode 13: Capture the Flag!
Cybersecurity professionals are constantly honing their skills and adding to their knowledge set. Still, to stay ahead of attackers, defenders must make sure to continue to think outside of the box, see the obscure, and practice their ability to solve problems. Capture the Flag competitions are a popular exercise at cybersecurity events, offering an array of riddle-like security challenges. Blue Team Con 2022 hosted such a competition for attendees and it was won by onShore Security analyst Chris Spankroy.
Chris joins Stel to talk about his experience with Blue Team Con’s Capture the Flag competition, how it was designed to test “blue team” skills, and how he analyzed his way to victory.
