November 2021 Chapter Meeting

Using Capture the Flag contests to recruit, identify, and train talent

Do you want to know how to build a top-ranked competitive security team? I don’t mean some
sort of certification -- I mean a team of master hackers who can bend systems to their will to
achieve any objective. 

It’s all about the system. In sports, we understand systems that coaches can use to build a
system for identifying talent, recruiting them, training them up, and competing in big games.
Learn our proven system for building an elite team of hackers that we’ve maintained for over a
decade. It’s surprisingly easy, but not what you’d think.
