Benefit While Making an Impact

eCTF provides a fun opportunity to help educate the next generation of cybersecurity professionals, promote your brand, and grow your talent pipeline. Your sponsorship will support the future of the embedded security workforce while giving your organization exposure and access to it.


The eCTF is unique in three major ways. First, the focus is on securing embedded systems, which presents a new set of challenges and security issues that are not currently covered by traditional “online” CTFs. Second, unlike the standard attack-only CTF, the eCTF balances offense and defense by including design, build, and attack components. Finally, the eCTF runs over the majority of the spring semester through three phases, allowing time for development and for advanced attacks during the Attack Phase.

eCTF Workforce Development in Action

While participating in the MITRE Engenuity eCTF, students opt-in to sharing their resumes with competition organizers and program sponsors! Each year, hundreds of students submit their resumes, in the hopes of exploring growth opportunities. Sponsorship is an excellent way to build talent pipeline and start engaging with these top students from world class universities.
