Three Lineal IT engineers have scored among the ‘Top 50’ in the international CyberDrain ‘Capture-the-Flag’ SysAdmin Competition.
Hugo achieved a stunning 4th-place finish internationally – just narrowly missing out on a bronze medal for Team GB, but winning a PlayStation 5 in the process from competition cybersecurity-sponsor Huntress.
Martyn and Joe also scored very highly from among 1,000 competitors worldwide – finishing a record 17th and 32nd respectively.
Each passed significant milestones in their challenges – at 2000 points and 3000 points respectively – with Hugo becoming one of only four competitors worldwide to break the stratospheric 4000-point barrier.
Designed to test System Administration and IT engineering skills, the CyberDrain CTF challenge puts competitors through a series of forty investigative challenges across server and client-side, Microsoft Azure, Linux and Microsoft 365 environments. The competition ran throughout July, with bigger point bonuses awarded for more complex technical challenges.
Congratulations to all our competitors!
