Roger Rambo, a Middle Georgia State junior majoring in Information Technology, is the winner of the University’s first “capture the flag” (CTF) competition, called the Cyber Knights Banner Challenge, held in February 2018.
Several other IT majors at Middle Georgia State (MGA) also participated in the CTF event, designed to help teach students about specific aspects of cybersecurity.
In computer security, CTF is a computer security competition and one of the fastest ways to help students learn techniques for protecting systems against cyberattacks. CTF contests are usually designed to serve as an educational exercise to give participants experience in securing a machine, as well as conducting and reacting to the sort of attacks found in the real world.
