Add new skills to your security arsenal by attending one of the most offensive training events of the year. Attending Pen Test HackFest 2019 will give you an opportunity to enjoy two days of in-depth Summit talks, three nights of NetWars, one night of CyberCity missions and a Summit field trip, all alongside world-class SANS courses taught by their top Pen Test course authors and instructors. This is the singular yearly event where the SANS Pen Test Curriculum throws EVERYTHING they’ve got into the mix for an incredible hands-on learning experience to transform your skills and take you to the next level.
HackFest Summit presentations are organized by SANS Fellow Ed Skoudis and are designed around a central offensive security theme, providing you with cutting-edge insight and skills to dramatically improve your organization’s defenses. Whether you have red team, penetration testing, forensics, or cyber defense experience, the comprehensive lineup of talks and panel discussions will broaden your knowledge base and help you better protect your organization.
Don’t miss this chance to get away from the office, gain a fresh perspective, network with like-minded professionals, play NetWars, challenge yourself, and learn the skills you’ll need to prepare your companies for the attacks coming its way.
Bonus sessions offered throughout this comprehensive offense-focused training event will include:
- 1. NetWars, NetWars, NetWars! (NEW v5.0): This event will include THREE full evenings of SANS NetWars challenges, increasing the amount of NetWars time over a traditional SANS live training event. NetWars is an action-packed challenge environment where participants can build their skills while having fun!
- Coin-A-Palooza: Have a chance to earn up to FIVE SANS Pen Test Challenge Coins that are normally only available to the winners of Capture-the-Flag competitions at our six-day courses. If you’ve ever taken a SANS Pen Test course and either earned your coin or didn’t, this is your opportunity to earn coins by participating in SANS NetWars. Each coin has a theme and a cipher, so you can show your friends and colleagues your achievement back in the office.
- CyberCity: In a miniature cyber range simulation, you’ll get the opportunity to impact the physical effects of a hack – meaning that when you hack something in CyberCity, you’ll see the power grid go out, the train derails, and the missile fire!
- Summit field trip and challenge: Enjoy a night of fun and networking as well as a custom Capture-the-Flag challenge uniquely designed just for HackFest attendees.
- And much more…
