Event Sponsor

In its 20th year, the BlackHat Conference returns to none other than the famed and vibrant Las Vegas, Nevada at the Mandalay Bay Hotel. Booz Allen's Kaizen Team has been running Capture the Flag (CTF) events at Blackhat since 2013 and this year will continue the tradition. We heard your feedback for more hacking time, and instead of a half or full-day workshop, we're running the challenges continuously through July 26th and 27th that you can hack on anywhere around the conference or where Internet is available. Visit https://blackhat.kaizen-ctf.com for more information and register. Stop by our booth (#112) for access to additional challenges available only to Blackhat attendees. The Kaizen Team is committed to promoting your ongoing learning, so the challenges range from easy to advanced with cash prizes up to $2000!
