CTF Sponsors

Want to Become A Sponsor?

As of now, the Sheridan Capture the Flag Competition( “CTF”) is scheduled for March 14th, 2020. As such, we are in the process of searching for sponsors. Our CTF is a wonderful opportunity for your organization to:

  • Promote its brand, products, and services
  • Network and engage with prospective talent
  • Actively participate in the security industry and community

Out top priority is to create a sponsorship package that is unique to you. We are very flexible because we want you to be part of our rapidly-growing community. In our 2019 CTF, our Title Sponsor, Security Compass, had the opportunity to:

  • Deliver a keynote presentation
  • Set up a booth and sign display
  • Speak directly to students during breakout sessions
  • Submit three sponsor-branded challenges
  • And distribute swag and promotional material to all participants

What is the Sheridan CTF?

ISSessions’s biggest event of the year is the Sheridan Capture the Flag (“CTF”) competition. A CTF is a cybersecurity competition designed to challenge its participants to solve computer security problems and/or capture and defend computer systems. CTFs consist of a series of challenges that vary in their degree of difficulty. Once a challenge is solved, a “flag” is given to the players and they submit this flag to earn points. CTFs are widely used an educational tool at industry conferences such as DEFCON, RSA, BlackHat, and Bsides.

The Participants: Our Students

Our 100+ CTF participants come from three colleges (Sheridan, George Brown, and Seneca), and represent, as a collective, the future of Web Security, Digital Forensics, Malware Analysis, Network Security, and Vulnerability Research. They are the students of today but, more importantly, the decision-makers of tomorrow. We are excited for you to meet them!
