The ACSC’s newly opened headquarters in Canberra and network of Joint Cyber Security Centres (JCSCs) in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Adelaide are hosting the event. This is the second Splunk Capture the Flag challenge to be held in the JCSCs, after a Brisbane-based event in May attracted approximately 60 participants.
‘Every incident and scenario in this cyber challenge is based on something that Australians, as customers or security analysts, are likely to have seen or experienced,’ Mr MacGibbon said. ‘But what is the best and quickest answer to the threat?’
The Boss of the SOC (Security Operations Centre) Investigation Workshop for Splunk app was built to help security professionals learn more about how to use Splunk to hunt the threat, map their findings and better answer the questions heading their way from decision-makers.
The JCSC teams and Splunk teams in each state are coordinating and preparing for the event. Live results will be available as the competition progresses, and the winner will be announced at the conclusion of the event.
