Biohacking Village 2

What is a Capture The Flag (CTF)?
Individual or Teams of Hackers (you) work to defend a hospital under siege, racing against the clock. The immersive, "learn by doing" environment will challenge hackers to use their skills to anticipate, defend, and recover, as their adversary escalates their attacks throughout the game.

Be part of the live exercise on April 12 and get hands on experience working on medical device security challenges. Participants will download simulated device security "problems" to be discovered and solved. This event is for intermediate or advanced individuals or teams, this is not recommended for beginners.
