Collegiate Penetration Testing Competition

CPTC focuses on training and evaluating the activities teams are likely to perform during a real-world penetration testing engagement.

At its heart, CPTC is a bit different from several other collegiate Cybersecurity competitions. Instead of defending your network, searching for flags, or claiming ownership of systems, CPTC focuses on mimicking the activities performed during a real-world penetration testing engagement conducted by companies, professional services firms, and internal security departments around the world.
