Security Congress Abstract
With the number of cybersecurity-related positions outpacing the workforce, employers and employees have turned to cybersecurity training to fill those gaps. Traditional cybersecurity training can cover the basics, but it is most likely not customized to the industry that the student must work within. Computer-based training can also often be stagnant and lack a certain level of entertainment. Capture the Flags (CTFs) can add excitement to cyber learning, which can empower the workforce and facilitate retention. In this session, we will explore CTFs as a gamification method to enhance cyber training. Our method of conducting a CTF will be explored with detailed information on how to reproduce this method.
