Capture the Flag – Threat Defense Challenge

hosted by our presenting sponsor Trend Micro!

Calling all security experts! Imagine that your company is in a critical situation, you’re being attacked by cybercriminals. Would you be ready to “think like a hacker” and face the challenge?

On the day of the event, you will defend against a simulated cyberattack that is reminiscent of a real-world threat. The aim is to win the Threat Defense Challenge and be the best at defending your valuable assets.

Join this action-packed session and learn to:

  • Understand the tools and techniques used by hackers

  • Protect your environment against an attack
  • Plan and implement security measures
