The CyberCamp-USAL program, coordinated by the Spanish National Cybersecurity Institute (INCIBE) and the BISITE Research Group of the University of Salamanca, continues its program of activities aimed at raising awareness of the importance of cybersecurity today.

This time, an online Capture the Flag (CTF) competition will be held. It is to take place next Wednesday, 25 October, and is targeted at both employees and self-employed individuals. Participants may belong to companies which have IT or security equipment, but their companies must not offer services in this area. Thus, the cybersecurity skills of the participants will be measured through different hacking challenges organized in different categories and levels of difficulty (web, forensics, cryptography, steganography, networks, and binary), adapted to any person regardless of their knowledge.

The CTF will be held in the style of Jeopardy, and the challenges with the highest difficulty will be the ones that score the most points. Scores are dynamic, i.e., the more people solve a challenge, the lower the score. In addition, a bonus is awarded to the first participant to solve each challenge.

The competition will be held between 14:00 and 19:00 (peninsular time) on 25 October, and each participant can enter whenever they wish, bearing in mind that the scores vary depending on the order of resolution. Currently, there are more than 120 registered participants and registration is still open through the e4you platform at this link:

The CyberCamp-USAL initiative, which has previously carried out events such as the awareness program on the safe use of the Internet or the webinar "Training in cybersecurity and employability", has planned a wide range of activities through to 2025, from conferences to workshops, training and new competitions. More information can be found on the CyberCamp-USAL website.
