First place at Deloitte CTF Final
Having previously qualified in the online round, we (Alastair, Cecile, Chris, Emma, and Ilias) headed to London to participate in the Deloitte CTF final, with a cool £5000 in prizes to fight for.

The last 4 minutes were intense: we were tied with Edinburgh at 3000 points, but they were leading.

Final rankings were as follows:
We solved 10 out of 17 challenges:
And here is the team, with an awesome check!
