On the last Init6 InfoSec Group meeting I did a short talk about InfoSec Gamification and them we did some “gaming”.

While there I talked about how its done and about my experience with it.  I would like to encourage other professionals, students and enthusiasts to participate in various CTFs and “competitions” out there.

There are many, many open CTFs out there, but I would like you to consider SANS NetWars Tournaments, Course, Continuous and CyberCity.  Although they are paid services (really worth the money) these are designed by Ed Skoudis, The Grand Master Jedi of InfoSec (in my opinion) and just top notch.  NetWars is structured and design not only to test your skills, but to learn and have fun at the same time.  Not many CTFs can state the same.

My First experience with  CTF’s was a couple of years ago and I just fell in love with them. They are a great experience and mostly a lot of fun.

Well,  … here is my presentation from the meet, enjoy and remember to comment:

See you on the wire …
