Wilmington’s Security Innovation To Run “Hack Through The Holidays” Event To Build Cyber Security Skills

Below is a press release from Security Innovation, which is headquartered in Wilmington:

WILMINGTON, MA — Security Innovation, a leader in software security assessment and training, recently announced that it will be running its annual website hacking challenge to anyone who wants to think like an attacker during the holiday season.

A primary goal of Security Innovation’s Hack Through The Holidays event is to educate users about the benefits of  hands-on “learn by doing” platforms to hone real world skills. Unique to the industry, CMD+CTRL cyber range features intentionally vulnerable Web sites where players compete to find vulnerabilities, score points, move up the leaderboard, and win prizes. Unlike many holiday promotions, there are no strings attached: no credit cards, commitments, or software to download.

This year’s competition features InstaFriends, a social media site that offers 55 challenges of varying difficulty level including SQL injection, vertical & horizontal authentication bypass, and crypto challenges. You can escalate privilege to gain admin power, manipulate other users’ timelines, and alter privacy settings.

Videos, blogs, and other getting started assets will help those with limited to no security background.

The challenge will run from Thursday, December 26, 2019 through Tuesday, December 31, 2019. Register HERE.
