DFIR CTF/Challenge of the Year – Cellebrite 

The first-ever Cellebrite CTF was a huge hit in 2020 and the CTFs we ran in 2021 continued to shine. We loved creating them and watching you dive into the data and solve questions in the most unique ways. We learned a lot from it and we hope you can say the same. The week of the CTF brought so much excitement to Cellebrite, and we are going to continue with this trend and release two more CTFs in 2022!

Hint: think PC, mobile, Mac, and investigations…
