Traditional certifications and lecture-based training may teach fundamental technical concepts, but they can’t prepare your cyber workforce for the dynamic and complex challenges that they encounter in the real world. That's what makes capture the flag (CTF), the traditional hacker wargame, such a powerful training tool for cybersecurity professionals—it forces them to team up and think fast to solve novel problems under pressure and on the fly.
Booz Allen's CTF events are designed to test and build your cyber team's skills through scenarios based on adversarial tactics, techniques, and procedures observed in the real world by our expert threat researchers. They're staged in environments built from familiar components and tailored to mimic your organization's actual operating environment. The challenges themselves are multilayered and carefully crafted to cover unfamiliar territory for participants. We serve up problems that your workforce may not know how to solve or even approach at first. It is this ability to learn on the fly and think outside of the box that gives hackers their elite reputation—and it's something your teams can learn.
