Cyrex loves participating in hacking related events, that’s exactly why we signed up for the Cyber Security Challenge Belgium. This CTF is a very prestigious challenge and has a lot of great sponsors. When reaching the top 3, incredible prizes can be obtained, such as certification courses, money prizes, membership for ISACA and so on… We managed to reach the third place which we was quite nice.

Based on the principles of a Capture The Flag (CTF), this computer security competition is a challenge-based game played by teams of maximum 4 members. Over a limited timeframe, the teams must solve challenges covering a wide range of security issues, e.g. cryptography, reverse engineering, network security, web or mobile application security, wireless and forensics analysis. Complexity of challenges range from trivial up to very difficult.
