Friday, September 23rd, 6:30pm - 9:30pm
Do you really know your way around networks? Do you think you can find security flaws on a local machine? Can you remotely take control of a service or analyze evidence to determine attacker activities?
NetWars-Tournament Play games are a collection of computer and network security challenges designed to represent real-world security issues, their flaws and their resolutions. Each player can follow an independent path based on individual problem solving skills, technical skills, aptitude, and creativity. The game is played in a fun but safe environment using the technology that drives our lives every day.
All students who register for a 5- or 6- day course will be eligible to play NetWars for FREE.
The following bonus sessions are open to all paid attendees at no additional cost. There are many different types of events that fall into these categories:
- SANS@Night: Evening presentations given after day courses have ended. This category includes Keynotes.
- Special Events: SANS-hosted events and other non-technical recreational offerings. This category includes, but is not limited to, Receptions and Information Tables.
- Vendor: Events hosted by external vendor exhibitors.
- Lunch & Learn: Short presentations given during the lunch break.
