1110 – CTF 101

January 31st,  Innevation Center

Hello Shad0ws! We hope you all had a fantastic holiday season and were able to enjoy it with your close friends and family. I know it feels like it has been an eternity since we have all met up, but don’t worry the wait is almost over!

More Info

If there has been one topic that seems to always catch everyone’s attention it has to be Capture The Flag (CTF). So we figured, what better than to host an event that is all about CTF!? For many, the thought of a competitive game that involves using numerous tools, solving problems, and hacking all while pressed for time can be scary. Have no fear, Shad0w Synd1cate is here to help shed some light on the world of Cyber CTFs!

This event is aimed to help provide some further information regarding what a Cyber CTF is and what you can expect. It is meant to be a higher level discussion to help you get your feet wet and hopefully make them less daunting and easier to approach! Below is a list of some of the questions we will be answering:

– What is a Cyber CTF?
– What can I expect?
– What tools should I use?
– Do you have any good resources?

And of course, what is a Shad0w Synd1cate presentation without a hands-on workshop?! We will have a little lab at the end to help you get your feet wet in using some of the tools discussed!

We hope to see you there! As always, don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.

NOTE: Please stay tuned for an update on where you can download your lab material from!

1111 – Open Mic/Workshop Night

February 28th, Innevation Center

Hey Shad0ws! This month we are going to have another workshop and open mic night…


More Info


This time, we have one of our fellow Shad0ws Tim Stover, AKA S1gk1ll17, who is going to be hosting a hands-on workshop on none other than Metasploit! You are all in for a real treat, and what better time to get hands-on with Metasploit than right after our awesome CTF 101 event last month! Come hang out and learn how to utilize Metasploit to exploit or “hack” a system, gaining full SYSTEM level access!

Outside of that, open workshop and mic nights are dedicated to collaboration! So what is an open workshop/mic night? I am glad that you asked! Are you working on a pet project, but running into problems? Don`t fret! Bring your project to the meetup and let’s see your fellow Shad0ws can assist! Are you looking to start a project and would like to work with members of the group? Awesome, bring your ideas to the meetup and discuss it with fellow Shad0ws! Do you have an interesting discussion or topic you want to inform or teach the group about?

We want to know, and the mic is open for you to step on stage and talk about it, it can literally be a 5-minute talk or however long you want!

We are hoping that this kind of meetup will really get the innovation juices flowing as we help each other through technical problems and come together to plan something huge!

If anyone has any recommendations on projects we can do as a whole or, even thoughts about how we can make the group better, bring them to the meetup and let`s talk. Like we always say, this group is for all of us and we are all representations of the group. The more we all pitch in with ideas and suggestions to make this group better, the more we will flourish and grow!
