The Mid-Atlantic Gigabit Innovation Collaboratory (MAGIC) is pleased to announce the success of their 10th Capture The Flag (CTF) event that took place this past Saturday, April 24th. This was MAGIC’s largest virtual CTF to date with participation from the US, Estonia, and Bosnia-Herzegovina. MAGIC’s bi-annual CTF event remains one of the largest CTFs worldwide that is designed specifically for beginners.
“It’s very satisfying to see so many students from different countries come together for a common goal of furthering their commitment to cybersecurity,” says Kim Samuelson, Program Director for MAGIC. “It was our 10th competition so we made the puzzles more difficult, but our students rose to the occasion and did a fantastic job.”
