Learner's Section: Cyber Patriots 2018

On November 30, 2018, StormCTF will be at the RTP Headquarters with Raleigh ISSA to go over a CTF workshop. The attending group will be getting familiar with a CTF environment while StormCTF is able to test the stability of the network under remote stress. The 2018 InfoSeCon StormCTF Learner's subnet will be available for play. This event is targeted for the Cyber Patriots program in North Carolina.
