We hope you all had a relaxing, reading week . Those that participated in the ISSessionsCTF may not have been relaxed for the entire break, but I’m sure lots of fun was had trying to solve challenges . We want to thank everyone who had a hand in the CTF, including our sponsors, members and fellow execs .
I would like to announce the top three teams were:
1st Place: pls i want an apple pencil from the University of Waterloo
2nd Place: w4t3rl0wn from the University of Waterloo
3rd Place: PencilTesters from the University of Victoria
Amazing job! You will be contacted to redeem your prize. As a reminder, you must show proof of enrolment to be eligible for prizes.
For the other participants, we will be distributing 2 month TryHackMe licenses to the top 100 participants. These will be sent to the email you used when registering on CTFd in the coming weeks. An announcement will be posted when they all have been distributed.
Last but certainly not least, we have reached that time when we again go through the process of providing opportunity for new skills , talents and minds to contribute to what we do here at ISSessions. The people that have taken advantage of these opportunities have been responsible for making this club what it is today . So, if you are interested in having a chance to apply what you learn in a useful way, challenging yourself, connecting with industry professionals, learning new technologies, solving complex problems, working in a team (the list goes on), you should consider applying to be an executive of next years team. Below is the application:
We are almost a week away from the start of the ISSessionsCTF2022 workshops delivered by KPMG, Mandiant, Lares Consulting and Bell which will be hosted in the ISSessionCTF2022 Discord channel (https://discord.gg/SAWfZhyC).
We are excited to announce the workshop schedule is officially out! You will see a list of the workshops in the events channel at the top of both servers and boy are they . The best part is that you do not need to be registered for the CTF to join (…but you probably should)!
In the ISSessionsCTF sever each sponsor has their dedicated section where they have posted workshop instructions. If you plan on attending a particular workshop, your next step would be to check the “workshop-info” channel for the respective sponsor. There you will find out more workshop details, any special instructions and prerequisites.
As a friendly reminder, if you have not registered for the CTF, you can still do so on:
