Pros v Joes CTF – Maven Security

Maven Security, a security consultancy based in Delaware, has recently lent a helping hand to the Pros v Joes CTF (PvJ-CTF) at BsidesLV in the form of an in-kind sponsorship. Maven Security donated the time and talent of their CTF maven and longtime Pros v Joes volunteer @gi0cann. (Rumor: The character Alec Hardison from the show Leverage was based on the real-life exploits of @gi0cann.)

At BsidesLV @gi0cann was a fantastic resource for the CTF environment, which, besides a full corporate environment of servers, had the amazing addition of VoIP to the environment. That PvJ was the largest and most successful PvJ yet.

For BsidesDE in 2015 Maven Security will be upping the ante with another in-kind sponsorship.  Specifically @gi0cann, besides helping build & tweak the CTF this year, will be emerging from his secret hacker lair as the boots on the ground co-ordinating this year’s Pros v Joes CTF.  With @Dichotomy1 running the PvJ CTF, and  @gi0cann co-ordinating, as well as the other PvJ volunteers, we are confident this will be another amazing Pros v Joes CTF.

Don’t just sit on the sidelines this year; jump into the fray by registering for the CTF at BsidesDE.
