      Hi Folks,

      Just wanted to let those of you based in the UK, looks like registration is open for the UK Cyber Security Challenge.
      https://cybersecuritychallenge.org.uk/

      There are different options to register for

      SANS Institute and Sophos Security Treasure Hunt
         *  Multiple choice questions that test their overall knowledge of the sector
         * A series of questions focused on how to discover flaws in a dummy website full of vulnerabilities that they must identify themselves
      https://cybersecuritychallenge.org.uk/competitions/treasure-hunt.html

      QinetiQ Network Defence
         *  Stage one – critical assessment of a fictional business scenario and accompanying network diagram.
         * Stage two (Top two teams from each category only) – Face-to-face challenge at “The Portal” hosted at QinetiQ’s Headquarters in Farnborough. Teams must support and defend their network against attacks from cyber security professionals.
      https://cybersecuritychallenge.org.uk/competitions/network-defence.html
      DC3 Digital Forensics Challenge
         * The competition consists of approximately 25 different challenges forwarded to all participants, ranging from basic digital forensics techniques to advanced tool development.

      There’s a cipher page for a fun little intro challenge. https://cybersecuritychallenge.org.uk/cipher.html

      The QinetiQ network defence sounds particularly good!

      Seems like a good way to get your foot in the door, there are some good prizes to be had! I wonder if Ed Skoudis had anything to do with the treasure hunt?

      Anyone signing up?

      Oops, registration might not officially open until tomorrow…

      I signed up yesterday evening. ‘Broke’ the ‘cipher’ within an hour.

      I’m thinking I may have registered before it was officially open, I may have to re-register.

      Looks like someone solved the first cipher puzzle, wasn’t as simple as it may have seemed!

      Phew – found & finished the real challenge 😀

      Take it back, I didn’t solve the cipher.  :- There’s more to it than I originally thought!
