The Cyber Security Challenge: Capture the Flag edition is an online team-based competition focused on security. It’s for students aged 16+ and lasts for 24 hours. Each team has to solve 25 puzzles of increasing difficulty across five categories; coding, web, miscellaneous, binary and crypto.
To take part in the challenge, students need a PC to connect to the challenges.reply.com platform, and be part of a team of 2 – 4 people.
