"There are numerous one of a kind components to this gathering and it begins with an overall storyline," clarifies Ed Skoudis (@edskoudis), executive of SANS Cyber Ranges and Team-Based Training and creator of KringleCon, "An evil miscreant attempts to hack the meeting to make it be dropped. A year ago, the detestable programmer bolted up Santa's castle and held gathering participants inside the castle. The current year's topic will be similarly exciting. The expansion of offensive and defensive AI challenges is particularly energizing, as we accept this to be the first occasion when that AI is utilized in a CTF occasion."
