A Competition for Students, by Students

About ISTS



The Information Security Talent Search (ISTS) competition is an annual three day cyber attack/defend competition hosted at the Rochester Institute of Technology by SPARSA. Each year, colleges from around the North East compete for the coveted title of ISTS champion. Competitors are faced with a wide variety of challenges which are designed to cover as many facets of computing security, system administration, networking, and programming as possible. These challenges include code review, architecture design, incident response, and policy writing all while defending a completely student built infrastructure.
