UK Cyber Security Challenge

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...

Re: UK Cyber Security Challenge

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.

Re: UK Cyber Security Challenge

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

Phew - found & finished the real challenge :D

Re: UK Cyber Security Challenge

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