GFA FLAG ATTACK – The French-German CTF

The German-French Academy for the Industry of the Future (GFA) is proud to present their first Capture the Flag (CTF) event! The event will take place at the prestigious Campus Cyber in La Defense (Paris) on December 5-6, 2023.

With Airbus Defense and Space we have an experienced co-organizer to make this event a unique experience. We will bring together 20 German (TU Munich) and 20 French (IMT) master students that will have the opportunity to engage in competitive challenges and foster their peer and professional network within the cybersecurity community.
The CTF event will offer a diverse array of challenges, and participants will have the opportunity to showcase their technical expertise and problem-solving skills as they navigate through simulated cyber-attack scenarios in the safe and controlled environment of Airbus` unified technical platform, the “Cyber Range”. 

The program will be enriched with keynotes from industry and academia shedding light on the latest trends and best practices in cybersecurity. 

Join us at the Campus Cyber in La Defense, Paris, on December 5-6, 2023, as we come together to celebrate the ever-evolving world of cybersecurity.
