Mission and goals

Faced with evolving threats and adaptive attackers, CTF is keeping the future in mind and training the next generation of cybersecurity professionals.

The center takes a hands-on approach to education, which includes encouraging students to participate in capture-the-flag competitions, hosting internship and apprenticeship opportunities, and collaborating with those already in the field through workshops to upskill their abilities

students using laptops is an online educational platform that provides training modules for aspiring cybersecurity professionals from both within and outside ASU. The modules build on each other, equipping students with theoretical approaches on how best to handle any given situation, and provide training on program misuse, shellcode, sandboxing, binary reverse engineering, memory corruption, exploitation and other topics. Since September 2021, over 4000 users from 118 countries have participated in the challenges.
