Capture the Flag (eng. Capture the Flag, CTF) competitions are a fun and popular way to encourage participants to take part in events. However, traditional cyber security CTFs are often very technical and can be difficult or intimidating for many participants.

ThreatGEN® Red vs. Blue offers a fun and exciting alternative to traditional CTFs that reaches a wider audience, from beginners to advanced. Instead of passively solving challenges for points, players compete against each other in live matches or against a computer opponent, actively attacking and defending systems and networks! Best of all, the ‘playing field’ remains level and competitive for all!

Get ready to unleash your strategic skills and embark on an electrifying journey into the land of cyber security! The Red vs. Blue tournament at the CyberTek Tech Festival is waiting for you with open arms.
