WHY A rapidly growing industry, Information Security holds outstanding opportunities for talented individuals, however young people rarely consider it as a possible career. That’s why Cleveland-based information security consulting firm SecureState and The University of Mount Union have teamed-up to host an interactive Capture-the-Flag (CTF) competition to introduce students to ethical-hacking while showcasing their skills in a creative way.


Prizes Each member of the winning team will earn a scholarship package, valued at several-thousand dollars, to divide among each member to apply toward their continuing education at a university of their choosing. flag_zombie_by_epicpoodle-d4cxa5k
