13. The rules for the Promotion are as follows:

  • Over the Promotion Period, participants will compete through completing their choice of 750+ ‘labs’ using Immersive Labs’ platform.
  • Participants will be emailed a signup code at the start of the Promotion Period, which will allow them to register on Immersive Labs’ platform and compete in the Promotion.
  • Each lab presents a specific challenge that participants complete in a ‘capture the flag’ type scenario. The labs may be knowledge based or of a practical nature in a simulated environment (or based on combination of knowledge and practical).
  • Each lab is allocated a set number of points, with those points awarded upon the completion of the lab. The number of points is predefined by Immersive Labs and is dependent upon the complexity of the lab.
  • Labs are arranged by topic and difficulty level. They are also mapped to industry frameworks such as the MITRE ATT&CK framework.
  • Some labs are grouped as ‘assigned objectives’, which are used in relation to one of the prizes (as outlined below).
  • The points from each lab accumulate in real-time for each participant, and are shown on a leader board, alongside the accumulated points of other participants.


14. If you are eligible to enter the Promotion in accordance with these Terms, you will be automatically entered into the prize draw unless KPMG receives notification from you that you do not wish to participate in the prize draw.

  • One Samsung C49HG90 49" QLED Ultra-Wide Curved Gaming Monitor; and
  • One Ender 3 Pro 3D printer.

16. KPMG is not responsible for inaccurate prize details supplied to any participant by any third party connected with the Promotion.
