Based on an authentic banking application: Shadow Bank, and includes 48 vulnerabilities that cover various vulnerability classes including the OWASP Top Ten and CWE Top 25

Want to get your teams genuinely excited about Web Application Security? Attend this Hackathon and plunge into the dark world of cyber attacks and view applications through the eyes of a rogue adversary.

Guided by cheat sheets, Security Innovation's “ninjas” and Shearwater Ethical Hackers, you will become immersed in a “find the vulnerabilities” game where you will quickly learn and apply hacking techniques in a sandbox environment - and all the while, acquire the skills needed to keep data safe.

  • Utilizes proven Capture-the-Flag (CTF) techniques in real-world settings

  • Fully functional banking application allowing users to exploit features they often build and use such as transferring money and applying for a loan

  • Clever pop-up messages, humorous sounds, and "Easter Eggs" throughout the sites make hacking them even more fun

  • Real-time scoring creates friendly competition and motivation

⌛ Strictly limited places available, book now and secure your spot.
