Join cybersecurity teams from 13 states for the Northeast Regional Collegiate Penetration Testing Competition (CPTC) held virtually Oct. 31-Nov. 1 and hosted by Virginia Commonwealth University College of Engineering.

This competition brings together teams from CPTC’s Northeast Region, which spans from Virginia through Pennsylvania to Wisconsin and Illinois. Teams will work to detect, triage and mitigate critical security vulnerabilities to improve the security position of a fictitious company. This exercise is similar to real-world penetration testing conducted by organizations around the world.

Registration Deadline is October 19, 2020

Winners will qualify for the National CPTC finals held in Rochester, N.Y., Jan. 7-10, 2021.
