ISSessions CTF 2019 – Thank you!

Another CTF has come and gone, and we’d like to take the opportunity to thank everyone who came out and participated. With over 15 teams taking part in the event, this has been our largest CTF to date!

A special thanks goes out to our sponsors Security Compass:

They really helped to make this CTF the best it’s been!

All the teams played well and really impressed us with their ability to solve problems they’ve never encountered before, but at the end of the day one team came out on top, and we’d like to congratulate team USSR for winning this year’s CTF.

Team USSR, ISSessions’ CTF 2019 Winners

Their win scores them some sweet Raspberry Pi’s and of course the eternal glory from winning. Congratulations also go out to Dr Dongos Bigger Bongos and TAZAmanian Trolls for coming in 2nd and 3rd place respectively.

We’d also like to thank the two teams that made it out from Seneca College to participate bright and early on a Saturday morning, they played hard and we’d love to have them back again next year.

A final thanks goes out to all the non-club exec volunteers who lent a hand with running the event, whether they designed challenges, created the infrastructure, or just ran around lending a hand on event day. The event was a great success and it would not have been possible without your support

We plan to host another CTF next year, so see you for ISSessions CTF 2020!
