7Safe’s STOMP challenge last seen at Infosecurity Europe in June 2016, continues grow and the competition is getting tougher.

STOMP (Stop the Offensive Malware Process) last gained 47 contestants by testing forensic capabilities and offering the chance to win a 7Safe accredited training course worth up to £2,100! IP Expo is set the see the STOMP numbers rise at London Excel on 5-6 October 2016 and as yet, no one has completed the challenge.

Do you have what it takes to be the first winner and train with our team of cyber experts?

STOMP Challenge

Our technical experts have devised two cyber skills contests specifically for IP EXPO Europe; namely:

Capture the Flag

Capture the Flag (CTF) is a web based hacking challenge developed by 7Safe’s Steven van der Baan in his capacity as a project leader of the OWASP CTF Project. You will not require any previous hacking experience or any tools, just creativity, resourcefulness and networking skills to solve the problems and ‘capture the flag’.

At IP EXPO Europe, the challenge will be run against the clock at set times throughout the event. You will encounter some of the latest vulnerabilities in IT systems which you will be required to exploit. Our expert consultants will be on hand to offer tips and assistance and to help you learn how your systems might suffer from similar vulnerabilities.


Have you ever considered a career as a Cyber Forensics Specialist? Do you think you have the skills required to find and preserve evidence in a criminal or security investigation?

We have created a STOMP (Stop the offensive malware process) challenge for this very purpose.

STOMP involves a version of the infamous CryptoLocker ransomware. We will set the malware off to do its thing and then there are three separate challenges:

  • Can you find me?
  • Can you stop me?
  • Can you remove me?

STOMP challenges you to identify, stop and remove the malware so we can restore our files. Could you be the first to crack it?

At IP EXPO Europe, the delegate that completes all three challenges in the shortest time each day will be offered a free place at one of our industry and university accredited hands-on training courses.

All contestants will also be entered into a prize draw for a further chance of winning a place worth up to win up to £2100 on one of our leading courses.

To try one or both of these challenges, visit 7Safe at stand R5 at London Excel or contact +44 176 326 7639/email marketing@7safe.com
