CSAW CTF 2014 Finals Results

This past weekend a bunch of us RPISEC members headed down to New York City to participate in NYU Poly's cyber security awareness week (CSAW) conference and competitions. RPISEC placed among the best undergraduate CTF teams of hundreds in CSAW's September 2014 qualifying event, moving us on to the finalist CTF event onsite at NYU Poly's campus in Brooklyn.

Four of our members competed in the CTF, while a handful of others came along to attend THREADS, participate in the DHS Homeland Security Quiz competition, and network with people from industry.

Our four person CTF team ended up placing 3rd behind PPP1 and PPP2 putting us on the pedestal for the first time in a few years. We also took 1st and 2nd in the DHS Security Quiz competition which is always a competition our club loves to compete in. Annually CSAW is the event we strive to do our best in and we were more than happy with this year's results. It couldn't have worked out much better for us.
