ViaPath Technologies’ Digital Forensic Florida Team, led by Shannon Black (Forensic Intelligence Supervisor), recently competed in the Annual “Capture the Flag” contest, hosted by Cellebrite.

Capture the Flag is a global cybersecurity, knowledge-based competition that tests one’s knowledge and skills in targeted cyber-attacks with the sole purpose of creating a safer digital world.  

The contest involves extracting and analyzing multiple digital devices and includes a series of knowledge-based test questions. The team was able to complete a total of four digital extractions that included one Android, two iPhones, one PC, while also successfully completing the testing process.  

Digital competency is at the core of any successful forensic team, and the ViaPath Forensic Team successfully completed the multi-day event placing in the Top 5% of over 2,000 entry participants.

This is a major accomplishment for the ViaPath Forensic Team and demonstrates their hard work and dedication. We are proud to congratulate them for their performance in the 2022 Capture the Flag competition and appreciate all their contributions here at ViaPath Technologies.
