SIG CTF Training cum Sharing Session

A one-day training and sharing session in preparation for the upcoming Capture The Flag competitions such as GovernmentWare Singapore Cyber Conquest and Hack In The Box in Kuala Lumpur was organized by the DISM SIG in collaboration the SP-ISACA Student Chapter on the 6th of September.

Final year students including student trainer Ng Choon Heng and Ku Wee Kiat conducted the session in a workshop-like style. Some of the topics shared are CTF fundamental knowledge, pre-competition setup, team building and dynamics, method and skills of communication during tournament, useful tools and software as well as common providers and frameworks for self-training and practice.

Year 1 and 2 participants said they benefited quite a bit from the session at the end of the day. At the same time some junior students such as Bai Jiacheng from year 2 and Nikolas Tay from year 1 also expressed their interest in learning more on Wireless Auditing and Web Application Vulnerabilities. Hopefully it would be covered in the future sessions to come.

Let us wish those who would be taking part in the coming tournaments good luck and all the best. Make DISM proud guys!
