Our goal is to help talented people reach their potential across this vastly diverse field. Here’s how you can use our expertise.
How cybersecurity training puts you ahead of the pack
A solid infosec career is one of the most satisfying professional paths right now.
To reap the benefits, you must acquire a wide range of knowledge and practical abilities rooted in a deep understanding of current and future challenges.
Besides knowing how to make the most of your technology assets, as a cybersecurity specialist you must be capable of probing the human mind in depth. This applies to your colleagues, superiors, peers, and especially to your adversaries.
Your organization relies on you to understand:
- How cyber attacks happen
- Who orchestrates them
- Why security incidents happen
- How to effectively respond to them
- What must be done to protect against them
Irrespective of your level, we can help you:
- learn basic technical aspects in cybersecurity
- improve your skills and know-how to get a job, a promotion or gain seniority

Red Team vs Blue Team
They say experience is the best teacher and we agree 100%.
This is why we truly enjoy organizing Red Team vs Blue Team exercises. These hands-on exercises put your security team in lifelike scenarios where they have to play offense and defense.
When your security team sees what an attacker sees, their defense gets better both in terms of approach and implementation. They also get better at several things, such as:
- prioritizing security issues and fixes
- moving from a reactive to a proactive mindset
- counteracting cyber criminals’ strategies
- enrolling the right people into your cybersecurity program
- deploying resource-effective security controls
- closing gaps in your security by building an overarching strategy
- improving their ability to adapt while counteracting active attacks and more.
We developed this training to help people like you improve their skill level and, most importantly, enhance their mindset.
Build confidence in your ability to tackle some of the most complex challenges in cybersecurity.
Capture the Flag (CTF)
Solving puzzles and complex issues is what cybersecurity specialists do best. It’s also one of the learning methods that accelerates your infosec career.
We’ve been organizing CTFs for almost a decade and we’ve seen first-hand how rewarding this experience can be.
In cybersecurity, a CTF (Capture the Flag) is a competition between security professionals. It involves solving a series of tasks and it has a game-like experience.
There are two types of CTFs:
- Attack-defend CTFs in which opposing teams attack each other while upholding the competition’s rules
- Jeopardy CTFs in which various teams must discover flags (code, embedded files, vulnerabilities, etc.) and gather the highest number of points to win.
Our team at Bit Sentinel has extensive experience organizing CTFs. Here are two of the most prominent ones.
CTF/DefCamp CTF (D-CTF).
DefCamp is a community event that grew into one of the biggest hacking and information security conferences in the CEE.
One of the main activities at the event is the DefCamp CTF which attracts an increasing number of participants with every edition.
We’ve been organizing the competition ever since it started and over 1,000 teams from 100+ countries join the online qualifications stage every year.
The attendees are eager to test their skills, scripts, and tools, and to explore real-life scenarios from all the challenges to win awesome prizes.
The challenges involves using various skills such as:
- vulnerability exploitation
- spotting and using web vulnerabilities
- data forensics
- network security
- data breaches
- blockchain security
- smart contracts
- penetration testing
- malware analysis
- reverse engineering malware
- identifying and exploiting iot vulnerabilities
- firmware exploitation and many more.
We can do the same for you!
CTF/European Cybersecurity Challenge.
In 2019 we are the technical coordinator of one of the prestigious CTF competitions in Europe: the European Cyber Security Challenge (ECSC). The ECSC is promoted by the European Commission and in a broader sense falls within the overall context of the EU’s Cyber Security Strategy, and the NIS Directive which together with the European Agenda on Security provide the overall strategic framework for the EU initiatives on cyber security and cybercrime
For the second year in a row, we are actively involved in the ECSC, after having contributed to selecting and training the Romanian national team for this competition.
In 2019, the ECSC will be held in Bucharest, with teams from 19 participating countries joining the challenge. Contestants will be challenged in solving security related tasks from domains such as web security, mobile security, crypto puzzles, reverse engineering and forensics and in the process collect points for solving them.
Security Awareness as a Service
You probably hear this quite often: people are the weakest link in cybersecurity. It comes up frequently because it’s true.
While investing in security solutions can make you feel safe, cybercriminals often circumvent security controls and target employees. They know that humans are always susceptible to manipulation.
Attackers often leverage curiosity, ignorance, fear or vanity to get victims to click malicious links, open malware-laden attachments or make unauthorized transfers (of money or data).
We see it very often in the overwhelming number of data breaches that start with an unsuspecting click or tap.
Ensure your employees are at least half as agile and effective as your technical security controls. Help them get better at defense with PhishEnterprise.
We built this platform for practical training focused on social engineering tactics to help you achieve just that.
You can leverage it in 3 distinct ways:
- Fully automated – use the entire set of predefined spear phishing attacks to teach your teams how cyber attackers operate
- Self-managed – customize exercises for different teams and implement them independently
- Fully managed by our team at Bit Sentinel – offload security training to us and we’ll make sure you get the most of your investment.
Add the invaluable human layer to your security setup and reduce your attack surface while ensuring compliance with the latest regulations.
