N00bSec to Cyber-Champion: How I Used CTFs Launch My Career in Cybersecurity
Too often, when I tried to learn cybersecurity in a classroom lab, I found that it existed in a sphere of ideal conditions: we were given the perfect command on the perfect target to get the perfect results on that target. As it turns out, the real world has less than ideal conditions, so I wasn’t sure how my education was going to translate to the real world. That’s when I discovered cyber competitions. In the CTF’s I began to play, I found that there were no wrong ways to get a right answer and I was finally able to hit the ground running in a way that felt like I was preparing for the workforce. Just over a year into my career, I can say that Cyber CTF’s prepared me better than any classroom experience could. Join me on Wednesday, October 2nd to find out how this newbie took her skills from #N00bSec to #Cyber-Champion using CTF’s!
