The cybersecurity awareness program, CyberCamp-USAL, coordinated by the National Cybersecurity Institute (INCIBE) and the BISITE Research Group of the University of Salamanca, successfully held the 2nd "CTF Cybersecurity Competition for companies outside the sector" on June 21 and 22.

75 workers from numerous companies located in countries such as Spain, Argentina, Colombia and Saudi Arabia attempted to solve the hacking challenges which had been organized into different categories (web, forensics, cryptography, steganography, networks and binary), which had varying levels of difficulty -from beginner to advancedq- so that anyone could test their knowledge. In the CTF, carried out using the well-known Jeopardy style, the scores were dynamic and the more difficult the challenge the more points it was worth, in favor of the person who managed to progress. There were more than 25 challenges, of which the participants managed to solve 17.

The competition ran from 10:00 a.m., June 21 until 6:00 p.m., June 22. During these hours, the CTF administrator team was available to solve doubts and technical problems. Finally, a user under the name 0xfun won the challenge with 6,272 points.
