Capturing the Flag with Active Deception Defenses
Capture the flag (CTF) exercises and events continue to increase in popularity providing essential training and skills development for defenders on blue teams and attackers on red teams. Jeopardy style or attack-defense CTF cyber exercises enable experienced participants and novices to work side by side on teams developing communication, time management and problem solving skills in a safe environment with ground rules and prizes for winners. Defending blue teams often dread the embarrassment of being attacked and compromised until modern deception defenses arrived. Deception defenses mimic a real environment with decoys and breadcrumbs creating an unknown mine field for attackers to detect their activity and movements giving defending blue teams a new advantage.
