Kriti and Abhiruchi from our corporate security team in Noida, India, were crowned the winners of the recent Winja Capture the Flag (CTF) competition hosted at the NullCon Goa security conference. Twelve (12) teams competed in this year’s contest. We would like to congratulate Kriti and Abhiruchi on their win. Adobe is an ongoing sponsor of the Nullcon conference. This competition was created by women to encourage their peers to enter the field of cybersecurity. It is a complete set of simulated web application security hacking challenges. Each challenge is separated into small tasks that can be solved individually by the competitors on each team. Each team works through the timed two (2) hour duration of the event in an attempt to attack and defend the computers and networks using prescribed tools and network structures.
Adobe is a proud supporter of events and activities encouraging women to pursue careers in cybersecurity. We are also sponsoring the upcoming Women in Cybersecurity conference March 31st to April 2nd in Dallas, Texas. Members of our security team will be there at the conference. If you are attending, please take the time to meet and network with them.
