Table 1: Cybersecurity Education Research and Outreach Center: Capture the Flag (CTF)
Presenters: Ambareen Siraj & Eric Brown
Description: Competitions allow students to learn cybersecurity skills in a fun and engaging way. It is an effective platform to increase students’ interest in cybersecurity and prepare them for defending against real cyber attackers. A typical CTF competition requires at least some basic technical security knowledge and months of diligent preparation. Inspired by the CS Unplugged project, the primary goal of the CTF Unplugged project is to teach students with little or no technical knowledge about the different cybersecurity challenges that a cybersecurity professional must address and the problem-solving skills needed for a cybersecurity career, all without direct use of technology.
