CTF Events

We host hands-on capture-the-flag competitions encompassing a wide range of cybersecurity topics designed to teach new skills and build collaboration among individuals and teams.

Private Training Workshops

We coordinate with your organization to design, build, and run personalized, interactive trainings on a variety of security topics.

Recruiting

Are you looking to expand your security team? We collaborate with companies to run recruiting events that draw interest and provide screening tools that test practical cybersecurity skills.

About

MetaCTF was started by a group of students from the University of Virginia who wanted to make cybersecurity more accessible. We seek to spark interest in the cybersecurity field by hosting hands-on trainings and interactive competitions that challenge and encourage individuals of all ages to explore new security techniques and concepts in a safe, open environment.
