ZenHack is a Zena-based CTF & cybersecurity Team founded in 2017 by a group of students and researchers interested in cybersecurity.
Our goal is to foster the development of technical and practical skills in cybersecurity and to spread our knowledge inside and outside the team. To achieve this goal we participate as a Team in CTFs, we take part in conferences and we organize annual seminar cycles for university students. For such training activities on ethical hacking we coined the name ZenHackAdemy.
As ZenHack we also organize the local lessons and laboratories for CyberChallenge.IT: the national training program in cybersecurity for highschool and university students.

Capture-The-Flags (better known as CTFs) are competitions where hackers have to solve cybersecurity problems (jeopardy style) and/or capture and defend computer systems (attack-defense style). These competitions consist of a series of challenges that vary in their degree of difficulty, and that require participants to exercise different skillsets to solve.
"Flags" are bits of data that prove you have completed a given task. Players can be lone wolves who attempt the various challenges by themselves, or they can work with others to attempt to score the highest number of points as a team. CTF events are usually timed, and the points are totaled once the time has expired. The winning player/team will be the one that secured the highest score.
