Security Innovation Running  its Annual “March Hackness” CTF event for the public

Vulnerable Web site offers a fun way to build cyber security skills and confidence

Wilmington, Massachusetts, UNITED STATES


WILMINGTON, Mass., March 16, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Security Innovation, a leader in software security assessment and training,  announced today that it will be running its annual Web site  hacking challenge for those seeking a non-intimidating way to build skills.

A primary goal of Security Innovation’s March Hackness event is to show the power of “learning by doing” and demystify the perception that hacking is only for the technical elite.   This year’s tournament features ShadowBank, a banking web site with 48 challenges spanning SQL injection, password cracking, and business logic abuse. Players can buy stocks as another user, transfer funds between accounts, and access unauthorized forums, all while scoring points and knocking out achievements.

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

Event Details:

March Hackness is part of Security Innovation’s commitment to community education. With over 75 free public events in 2019 and over 10,000 people building skills with their CMD+CTRL cyber range,  Security Innovation continues to see great individual interest in individuals filling the Cybersecurity talent pipeline.
