The first-ever inter-tertiary institute Capture the Flag (CTF) contest in Hong Kong/Macau has completed its first round. From among the 317 students who signed up with 96 teams, participants from the top 10 teams were honoured for their feat. In addition, all the participating teams were recognised with a certificate. The ceremony was hosted by ASTRI – its CEO Dr Frank Tong and CFO Ms Cammy Yung distributed certificates among the teams and rejoiced over the students’ successes.

Around 70 enthusiastic students took part in the event which took place at ASTRI premises on 28 April 2017. The certificate presentation ceremony was followed by a career talk on the Bug Bounty field. In addition, an iChunChiu expert explained the solutions to the first-round contest questions to the students.
The students not only celebrated their successes and enjoyed the sunny afternoon’s funny Photosession – they also expressed their interest over cybersecurity topics.
Mr Ron Chan, qualified Offensive Security Certified Professional with a strong industry-wide reputation, attended the event to share his experience with the students. Mr Chan is a Security Consultant for Dell Technologies and has rich experience in Bug Hunting. His reports have helped large organisations like Uber, Google, Yahoo with valid security bugs and other vulnerabilities – the organisations rewarded him and acknowledged him in their ‘Hall of Fame’. At the session, he shared his experience on how to be an ethical hacker for finding web vulnerabilities.
A cybersecurity expert from iChunQiu joined the occasion via a video message – briefing the participants on how to tackle the hardest challenges from the first-round contest and the step-by-step solution to ‘capture the flag’.
