Capture The Flag is a well known concept in the cyber security community, which is fun and motivating due to the high degree of gamification. On the other hand, the first steps into the CTF world can appear steep. In this talk, Jens Myrup Pedersen will share his experiences in using CTF for education, where he has good experiences from both ordinary education, part-time/continuing education, and company specific trainings - for example by combining mini-lectures with hands-on challenges, and by carefully selecting challenges to support learning objectives. The aim of the talk is to inspire you to improve competence development in your organizations using CTF as motivating and inspiring tool.
