The primary objective of every round of competition is to improve the security of one or more virtual machine images. Typically teams are required to complete the following tasks:
- Maintaining and hardening critical services
- Fixing vulnerabilities
- Removing malware from the systems
- Answering forensics questions
In order to facilitate success, CyberTitan participants are encouraged to watch training videos developed by Nick Dixon, former student and current mentor of the five-time National Finalist Participants at Sisler High School. Nick is a learning activity specialist and has developed these tutorial videos to build fundamental skills required to get started in cyber security competitions.
