KPMG Cyber Challenge 2016

Today at KPMG, we are hosting many enthusiasts from nominated universities in Malaysia for a very exciting event Cyber Challenge 2016. This is the second year that this event is conducted. Last year we received a very good feedback, hence we decided to expand the number of participants to a total number of 65 teams, each having 4 team members.

For those who don’t have any idea about Cyber Challenge events, it is indeed a capture-the-flag (CTF) game which there are several security concepts embedded to many mysterious problems, which eventually participants have to use their imagination and techniques to solve the problems, and find the hidden flag in each, and submit their findings. The winner is the one who solves more challenges!
