The Privasec Red Team participated in Missing Persons Capture-The-Flag for Trace Labs/ AustCyber - The Australian Cyber Security Growth Network Ltd. In what is considered a world’s first, over 80 teams and 356 ethical hackers used Open-Source Intelligence (OSINT) skills to track down people who have gone missing. Our team members managed to place 2nd in Victoria and 5th place nationally. All the leads were passes onto the federal police for further investigations via the National Missing Persons Coordination Centre.
