Have you ever attended a CTF event before?

This was the first time any of us have attended a CTF and so we were unsure of what to expect and also probably a bit nervous!

How did you find the various challenges?

We found the challenges interesting, relevant to our everyday work and liked how each challenge was rated for difficulty. They really got us thinking outside the box and expanding our knowledge of cyber tools.

What was your favourite part of the event?

I think the collaboration with the teams from Instil, VS and other participants really made the event enjoyable and a great learning experience. The atmosphere was friendly and not overly competitive with everyone willing to help and share knowledge.

Would you recommend this event to others?

Yes 100 percent! I have already recommended it to our IT Security Team as feel the content would be incredibly relevant to their work.
