CTFs: Leveling Up Through Competition - Alex Flores Derbycon 2018 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

CTFs: Leveling Up Through Competition
Alex Flores
Derbycon 2018

CTFs are fun and informative enough as they are, but if you approach them from a deliberate angle, you can use them to level up your career. This talk aims to break down the pedagogy behind competitive learning and how acquired knowledge can be applied in real life to chase an offensive security job.

Last year, during a 6 week hiatus while his bosses staged some Red Wedding shit with the company, he went heads down into OSCP, and CTFs for a year after that. He emerged having attained a long-held dream of belonging to the InfoSec community. Alex started out supporting tech as IT, building it as a SysAdmin, creating it as a Software Engineer, and now breaking it as a Red Teamer for WalMart.
