HackBack 2 is a virtual Capture the Flag event which will be held on 26 October 2019 through the TryHackMe platform. The event is exclusively sponsored by Context and will see teams from more than 20 UK universities competing.
The team with the most points will win the competition. HackBack2 will have an additional prize of £1,000 sponsored by Context for the team fielding the most female students, in a drive to improve gender equality in the cyber security industry.
The TryHackMe interactive platform was developed by two young cyber security entrepreneurs, Ben Spring and Ashu Savani, who met as students during an internship at Context. They developed the platform to make it easier for students and other newcomers to learn cyber security skills.
