The team representing Brunei Darussalam in the Cyber SEA Game 2017 in Bangkok
FOUR Bruneians will represent Brunei Darussalam at the Cyber SEA Game 2017 in Bangkok, Thailand this week. Organised by the Asean-Japan Cybersecurity Cooperation HUB, the event is Capture The Flag (CTF) competition for Asean member states. The winning team of the Cyber SEA Game 2017 will advance to SECCON Japan, a global CTF competition, in February 2018.
The team comprises Mohd Izdihar bin Sulaiman, Muhamad Nur Aiman bin Haji Jahari, Abdul Qayyuum bin Haji Abdul Kadir, and Abdul Fitri Shah bin Mohd Ali, the winners of last year’s Cyber Battle: CTF 2016, the second cybersecurity competition in Brunei.
The competition requires technical knowledge, skills and experience as well as teamwork. Participants learn about protecting computers and dealing with cyber-attacks.
Cyber Battle: CTF is an annual local competition organised by Information Technology Protective Services Sdn Bhd (ITPSS) where teams compete to find and exploit vulnerabilities on designated game servers. The competition serves as an educational exercise in information security and demonstrates the importance of cybersecurity and the need for information security specialists in Brunei.
