Have you ever heard of Global Cyberlympics before? In short, Global Cyberlympics is an online cyber security competition where teams from all over the world join to raise awareness towards increased education and ethics in information security. Over 500 teams from over 75 countries have participated since 2012.
But Global Cyberlympics goes beyond the basic Capture the Flag (CTF) competitions out there. Participating teams get challended in cyber security fields including digital forensics, network exploitation, web applications and service exploitation. “We enforce the idea of team-work by providing challenges that span nearly all areas of IT Security such as pen testing, forensics, malware, log analysis, system exploitation, physical security and those are just to name a few!”
