Please join us in congratulating the three MOQdigital employees from our Regional Office in Sri Lanka who, last week, won the hacking challenge at the National Security Week 2016.
The event was organised by the Sri Lanka Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT) as a part of the Cyber Security Week 2016 (an annual National event on Cyber Security). This challenge tested IT professionals on their information security skills in finding out vulnerabilities in the systems, exploiting them and taking precautions to secure them.
The winning team (Team Stark) included: Sajith (Lead) , Isuru and Udara from our Security Operations Centre (SOC) team. They successfully beat 14 other teams at solving security challenges which included but were not limited to:
- Capturing flags which were strategically hidden within computer networks
- Identifying vulnerabilities and exploiting them to obtain sensitive information such as logon credentials.
As a prize for winning, all three team members will be awarded Systems Security Certified Practitioner (SSCP) exam vouchers from ISC2 at the National Cyber Security Conference in November.
