Team Lineal Take On CyberDrain 2023

cyber drain ctf 2023

For the first time, a group of Lineal’s IT Support Technicians are taking on the international CyberDrain Tournament as a team.

Each year multiple engineers from Lineal take part in the Cyber Drain CTF tournament. Designed to test System Administration and IT engineering skills, the challenge puts competitors through a series of investigative challenges across server and client-side, Microsoft Azure, Linux and Microsoft 365 environments.

The competition runs throughout February and March, with bigger point bonuses awarded for more complex technical challenges, and prizes sponsored by a number of major technology companies. Lineal engineers have scored highly in previous years – placing within the top fifty, and even within the top ten competitors worldwide.

However this year the CyberDrain competition is also a team event, allowing Managed Service Providers to test themselves against the world’s best.
