Exchange Seminar with the “Most Valuable Hacker”

The next Exchange seminar will be attended by André Baptista, from the Institute of Systems Engineering and Computers, Technology and Science (INESC TEC). “Bug bounties and CTFs: a new approach to fighting cybercrime” will take place on October 17 at 2:30 p.m. in CP3 – Auditorium 103, University of Minho.

Currently, there are many certifications and courses available in the area of ​​Computer Security. However, Capture The Flag (CTF) and Bug Bounties competitions are two areas that complement each other, as they offer the experience of exploring complex scenarios and finding real vulnerabilities. These concepts are the key to learning advanced offensive techniques and thus be a good professional in the field of information security, able to protect critical infrastructures and combat cybercrime.
