Event Details

Organised by DSTA and supported by Athena Dynamics and NSHC, Cyber Defenders Discovery Camp (CDDC) 2022 allowed participants to experience a unique learning experience to showcase their cyber defence techniques.

Through the 1-month long training program, Athena Dynamics has been imparting the young minds with Cyber Security Knowledge and with lecture videos and “wargames” which are attempted by the students at the end of every lesson. The hands-on learning experience provided a chance for students to apply newly learnt technical knowledge in fun and interesting activities.

On June 21st 10am, the annual Capture the Flag (CTF) competition commenced. Taking the skills and knowledge imparted to them through the past month, the students engage in a 48-hour jeopardy-style CTF competition, showcasing their talent by completing challenges and gaining points.

The 2022 CTF competition is held virtually, but challenge tasks were not constrained to the online platform. Competitors were also tasked with hacking physical elements within a city set up that was build specifically for this event! The challenges are spilt into 5 rings of difficulty and include tasks like hacking into a tower crane system to move the crane remotely, controlling a nuclear centrifuge and gaining control of the city’s CCTV cameras.

With the successful completion of the Cyber Security Training and Capture the Flag competition for DSTA Cyber Defenders Discovery Camp 2022 under Brainhack event, we would like to commend all our participants for their hard work and success. We would also like to thank DSTA for their support throughout the event.
