This event runs over the course of the conference. It simulates real-world incident response and scenarios, and teams work to protect their infrastructure (their flag) against a number of escalating events. There are two parts of this event that will run simultaneous, a more traditional jeopardy style part and a Castle Defense part. The jeopardy style part will allow participants to work at their own pace through a number of security challenges to identify a specific answer (flag).

During the Castle Defense part, participants will get a production workload that they will need to harden and then protect against a number of security events that will occur throughout re:Inforce. The winner will be the top combined score of both parts. Participants can work on both of these parts during breaks, lunch, or even overnight. Join in by stopping by the Capture the Flag challenge at the Security Learning Hub.
