What is Trace Labs and how does the Missing CTF work?

Trace Labs is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to accelerate the reunification of missing persons with their families while training members in Open Source Intelligence (OSINT).

The missing persons issue is getting worse and requires modern and scalable solutions at various levels to help mitigate risk to society. Trace Labs leverages an intelligence platform that enables the of collection of OSINT to power these crowd-sourced community CTF events. These CTF events allow missing persons to receive the attention that is needed early in the search process.

This event will be comprised of 8 missing persons from the Greater Toronto Area.
