Global CyberLympics is an international online cyber security competition, dedicated to finding the top computer network defense teams. It tests the skills of information assurance professionals, in teams of 4 to 6 people in the areas of ethical hacking, computer network defense and computer forensics. Each round serves as an elimination round until only winning teams remain. The top winning teams from every continent get invited to play the game live in person at the world finals.
Global CyberLympics aspires to create an opportunity for ethical hacking to be accepted, practiced and demonstrated without any discrimination, across all geographical boundaries – for the purpose of understanding what it takes to protect and secure critical information and assets. One key initiative for Global CyberLympics is to foster an environment that creates child online protection through education.

InfoSec Southwest is an annual information security and hacking conference held in Austin, Texas, one of the most interesting and beautiful cities in the United States. By addressing a broad scope of subject-matter, InfoSec Southwest is intended to both provide a comprehensive and valuable forum to all participants as well as fill a gap for our local attendees left by the other few conferences held here in Texas which are all focused on a narrower scope of subject matter or a narrower slice of audience demographic. InfoSec Southwest also provides a completely open and unfiltered forum for lightning and turbo talks that is not constrained by a speaker selection process, mirroring our wildly successful local AHA! hacker meeting format. This forum is open for anyone attending the conference to speak on any topic they wish in a first-come, first-speak order. As such, we invite everyone to attend and participate.

Not a day passes without one hearing about email scams, stolen passwords, cyberwar and terrorism; cyber threats and crimes have been skyrocketing. An effective strategy to combat these threats would be to provide an awareness on vulnerability detection-exploitation-patching mechanisms and secure programming standards.
Cyber Security education is yet to make way its into the undergraduate curriculum; most students do not learn how to locate and fix design errors in software and configuration errors in various platforms. Creating an awareness regarding the same needs to be considered a matter of utmost importance.
InCTF, a Capture-The-Flag style contest, is to be viewed as a security exercise which provides an opportunity to learn the fundamentals of Information Security and put them into practice. Hopefully you will have as much fun participating, as we have in organizing the event.
We, on the other hand, consider InCTF as a chance to reach out to all the students out there and build what could hopefully be a vibrant community, sharing the goal of spreading the awareness.
