A First-Place Finish That's Just the Beginning
Big news from our corner of the digital universe! Our new in-house CTF team, "pwn.charity," just rocked their debut at the first-ever SageCon™ CTF, hosted by Western Governors University® (WGU®) and Hack The Box®.
What is SageCon?
SageCon is WGU's first annual CTF event on the Hack The Box CTF platform. This year's event was held on December 1st, 2023, and consisted of cybersecurity challenges covering everything from forensics to cryptography. Our team of WGU students and alumni took several "first-bloods" and snagged a first-place "W" with 13/13 challenges solved.
WGU's Unique Approach to Learning
WGU isn't your typical university. Their competency-based learning model is what sets them apart. It's all about mastering skills at your own pace, making learning a personal journey. This approach is perfect for the ever-changing world of cybersecurity, where being up-to-date and adaptable isn't just nice; it's necessary.
What's Next for pwn.charity?
This win at SageCon is just the start for pwn.charity. Our team is already gearing up for future challenges, eager to dive into new puzzles and continue our journey in cybersecurity competitions. Each event is an opportunity to learn, grow, and contribute to a safer digital world, aligning perfectly with our mission at Cyber Info.
A Word of Thanks
A big shoutout to Western Governors University and Hack The Box for organizing a fun and challenging event! In addition, a massive congratulations to every member of pwn.charity – we have set an incredible benchmark for ourselves, and there's only more pwning from here on out!
