news from Joint Cyber Challenge 2016
Last week we got together with the Military Cyber Professional Association and their partners at the Jailbreak Brewing Company in Laurel, Maryland, to see the awards ceremony for Joint Cyber Challenge 2016. This competition, which ran on May 14 and 15, involved sixty-five teams comprised of a total of 526 competitors (with four US Service Academies represented). The competition posed a total of forty challenges, of which thirty-eight were solved. The top three finishing teams were (and they know who they are, but we'll leave them identified by their handles for now): thefilesareinthecomputer, CyberKittenAttackSquad, and Delogrand. Congratulations to the winners, and to all who competed for a shot at the Military Cyber Professional Association's Order of Thor. We hope to talk to the Challenge's organizers soon.
(A note: this awards ceremony isn't to be confused with Friday's Jailbreak IoT Security Summit, which we also attended. It just happens that there's a lot going on at Jailbreak.)
