Security Quiz is a fun, fast-passed trivia competition for all CSAW finalists and other student teams. It traditionally occurs over two in-person rounds during CSAW Finals in November. The Qualifying Round uses the Mentimeter platform and Finals uses an Anderson Buzzer System. Teams are tested on a range of topics related to cyber security, including: Hardware, Malware, Software tools, Reverse Engineering, Web, Recon, Languages, Culture, Forensics, File Systems, Protocols, and Software.
