Do You Have What It Takes?

Battelle Capture the Flag (CTF) events are fun and challenging computer security competitions. Competitors are expected to “capture flags” to increase their score.

Battelle CTFs vary in their degree of difficulty and require participants to exercise different skillsets to solve them. Once solved, a flag is given to the player and they submit this flag to the CTF server.

Connect with our CTF team at [email protected] for help getting started with the Capture the Flag or to discuss career opportunities.
