SANS brings NetWars to BSidesLondon13Date: Netwars is on April 25th 2013 Venue: Kensington & Chelsea Town Hall (Community Room 1 Registration: pre-registration on April 24th at the SANS stall. Tech requirements are mandatory (see below) Thanks to SANS EMEA this year some BSidesLondon participants will get the opportunity to take part in NetWars. This in is a multi-level training program and fun competition that helps you develop and master skills. As you step through each level and validate that you have acquired the necessary skills, you get awarded points. Similar to a multi-player video game, you are competing against others to gain the highest number of points and win the tournament. There are five levels in the program designed to help you develop skills in these critical arenas: - Vulnerability Assessments - System Hardening - Malware Analysis - Digital Forensics - Incident Response - Packet Analysis - Penetration Testing Although the program is called NetWars, it's not all about penetration testing. Rather, it's a blend of defensive - meaning system hardening, good secure system administration, analytics, malware analysis, forensic analysis -- and offensive, including vulnerability assessment and penetration testing. SANS tries to balance the content across the spectrum; not any one area dominates.
