C2C Cyber-Security Challenge

More details on the C2C 2018 will be available shortly. In the meantime, here’s the background of the C2C:

In 2015 the University of Cambridge (in Cambridge, UK), and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (in Cambridge, Massachusetts) jointly launched Cambridge2Cambridge Cyber-Security Challenge. Announced in January 2015 by US President Barack Obama and UK Prime Minister David Cameron in the context of greater cyber-security collaboration between the two countries, the competition gave the students the opportunity to explore creative ways to combat global cyber attacks and acquire and hone crucial skills.

While the inaugural C2C was held at MIT, the 2017 competition was held at the Computer Labs and historic Trinity College on the University of Cambridge campus in the UK. To expand on the success of C2C, the team-based ‘capture-the-flag’ style competition was open to additional universities in the US and UK. Faculty leads from the University of Cambridge and MIT CSAIL formed blended teams from all universities based on the results of the qualifying round held in March 2017. Selected participants from the qualifying round competed in the live three-day showdown with over 100 competitors from the US and UK.
