Competitive Cyber Security: The Ultimate Training Experience by Tom Kopchak

For an information security professional, knowledge and experience are
essential. These individuals must be able to respond to a wide
variety of risks and threats, while also ensuring that information is
accessible and available for authorized users. Day-to-day operations
provide little room for experimentation on production systems.
Furthermore, the best way to respond to and protect against an attack
is to have firsthand knowledge of the attackers’ processes and the
vulnerabilities that are exploited.

Competitive cyber security events put all of these skills and more to
the test. Although the format of these competitions vary, the
approach is similar: competitors are given an unfamiliar environment
they must either defend or attack. In many cases, points can be
awarded by maintaining system uptime, recovering from and documenting
attacks, or successfully exploiting vulnerabilities.

In this presentation, I will explore the value of these events for
both security professionals and security students alike. Much of the
presentation will be based on my personal experiences in the National
Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition (NCCDC), and other events I
participated in or helped organize.


Security Awareness Training…Meh by Laura Survance

Security Awareness Training is getting a bad rap. And for good reason. As it stands, most users simply do not retain or apply information from training sessions. This presentation will identify the downfalls of current Security Awareness Training and discuss how to transition to more effective Security Awareness Foundations.


Don’t forget to come early, starting at 6:00 PM, for pizza and pop.
Another great meeting from NEO Info Sec Forum – we hope to see you there!
