Despite wide adoption, organisations remain unprepared for the velocity of cloud usage and expanding threat landscape. Hackathon participants will enter a world filled with real technologies, security holes, encoded emails, and hacker portals, experiencing first-hand the risk an insecure cloud environment brings.

Players assume the role of a recently hired IT Engineer about to turn hacker-for-hire. Guided by a chatbot, they need to find software, configuration and integration flaws across a full-featured AWS infrastructure.

Throughout the objective-based mission, a chatbot facilitates tasks, provides hints and gives rewards for completed challenges.
