For a second year running, AustCyber has partnered with the Australian Federal Police’s National Missing Persons Coordination Centre, and Canadian-based not-for-profit Trace Labs, to convene a missing persons capture the flag (CTF) event during Australian Cyber Week.

Participants in teams of up to four or as individuals will set about discovering information publicly available on the internet (also known as open-source intelligence or OSINT), with the goal of aiding relevant State and Territory police in their investigations for the missing persons cases provided for the event.

No experience necessary. If you can ‘google’, have searched for people through social media, you can help! As a bonus, you’ll be automatically registered for an online self-paced OSINT Foundational program to give you the basics and help you understand your digital footprint.

If you see yourself as an ‘online investigator’, ‘cyber hacker’, or a ‘cyber sleuth’, then this is the event for YOU!

Visit the Missing Persons Hackathon website for more information.
