We will be delivering a special free training on “Open Source Security Tools 101” on Wednesday August 7th from 0900-1100 and 1300-1500. Complete Agenda here.
Hack-a-Thon: HackWarz is a capture the flag event to stretch your security muscle and have FUN! You will have several systems to compromise and gain valuable tokens (flags) for points. Tokens are valued by difficulty and skillset required. To close the event, there will be a lessons learned in which each team will demonstrate how they compromised a system and explain how they would have hardened the systems to make it harder to be compromised. No matter what your skill level, HackWarz is a great event to test your skills and have a blast.
See you in Charleston!
