"Start playing CTFs now!" is something I wish someone had told me a few years back! I missed out on a dream role simply because I wasn’t prepared for a CTF. That’s a mistake I am not planning to repeat! Most qualified cybersecurity professionals miss out on great opportunities for this reason. How can you upskill your CTF skills to get that dream job and ultimately advance in your career? In this talk I will present 7 reasons why it is important to hone your CTF skills and further breakdown the misconception that CTFs don’t reflect real world scenarios. I will share insights on my first CTF experience at DEFCON28, the different hacking platforms, how each one is best suited for your skill-level and a beginner level demonstration on how to get started on Hack the Box.
