NetWars Tournament – complimentary with your Live Online course

NetWars Tournaments have always been a great way to apply what you learn during your SANS class but also to learn new skills and tricks while playing against your peers. World-renowned for being one of the best CTF exercises in the industry, we’re now adding this additional training experience onto your SANS Live Online course.

With your registration at SANS Autumn Australia Live Online, you will be eligible to join the SANS DFIR NetWars Tournament held on 22 - 23 May. DFIR NetWars is an incident simulator packed with a vast amount of forensic, malware analysis, threat hunting, and incident response challenges designed to help you gain proficiency without the risk associated when working real life incidents. You are also eligible to participate in our SANS Cyber Defense NetWars Tournament on 3-4 July and our SANS Core NetWars Tournament on 20-21 August.

It is unique in that it provides time-limited challenges that can be used to test the skills you've mastered, and at the same time, help you identify the skills you are missing. This is an exclusive opportunity only open to students registered at this Live Online event.

Once you’ve registered for a Live Online event, you will be emailed with further information for the relevant tournament. Please contact should you have any questions related to the NetWars tournament or this event.

Spotlight course:

All SANS courses are world-class cyber security courses, but with every event we like to choose a spotlight course and ask the instructors to give a bit more insight into what you can expect.
