UMBC Cyber Dawgs
Capture The Flag Cybersecurity Competition

The national champion UMBC Cyber Dawgs will hold the second annual computer security Capture The Flag (CTF) competition on Sunday, March 11th from 11am-7pm in the UC Ballroom. This CTF event is a Jeopardy-style competition where teams of four people use their laptops to discover answers to questions about cybersecurity, including network forensics, reverse engineering, reconnaissance, and cryptography. Each question has a point value based upon its difficulty and whichever team has the most points at the end wins!

The competition is open to all current UMBC students and student from a few other nearby schools. Both beginners and experts are welcome to participate.

Prizes will be awarded to the top teams. There will also be door prizes for randomly selected participants as well as T-Shirts for everyone. Some prizes from last year include Raspberry Pis, a Wireless Pineapple Nano, a YARD Stick One, and a Chromebook! Lunch and dinner (Lima’s Chicken) will be provided for everyone.

Students who are interested must register online in advance and bring a laptop to the event. Please note any dietary restrictions on the registration form as well as your T-Shirt size. See the event website for more information
