Arab Regional Cyber Security CTF 2019

It’s been three years and we have only gotten better! For the past three years, CyberTalents has worked hard with its strategic partner Trend Micro in setting new horizons for the young cyber minds to scale. Indeed, The Arab Regional CyberSecurity CTF Competition is happening again! For the 3rd consecutive year! Spurred by the humongous welcome we received in 2017 & 2018, we are working even harder this time to level up the stakes to test MENA regions’ cyber mettle. From the nucleated contests scheduled all over MENA region, the picked winners shall set foot in the Egyptian sands to flaunt your skills at Arab Regional Cyber Security CTF Competition on 22nd September, 2019.  The crowned Cyber lords of Arabia get to fly to Tokyo, Japan this November to compete in the International CTF Competition to represent all the Arab countries.

Be sure to dig into the varied genres of Cyber Security that shall be tested at the competition:

  • Network Security
  • Web Security
