Clau and 3 others


Tech Up Sessions are tech talks about different platform tools, cloud technologies, security, best practices and more. This event was made because we want everyone in our community to level up their skillset.

This month, we'll be hosting a "guided" CTF (Capture the Flag) event.
A cybersecurity CTF is a competition between security professionals and/or students learning about cybersecurity. This competition is used as a learning tool for everyone that is interested in cybersecurity and it can help sharpen the tools they have learned during their training.

We invited security professionals, researchers, and analysts as mentors for this exciting event!
These mentors will guide you on how to do the activities and later on, we'll be having a shared discussion with the other attendees.
