"I have had nothing but great experiences with SANS and always come away from classes and Summits with a TON of new things to read, research, and play with that makes me a better security professional." - Daniel Bougere, Securicon, LLC

SANS HackFest is two days of informative, inspiring, and technical talks from phenomenal and entertaining presenters who are tackling and solving some of today's most challenging offensive security problems.

Our one-track of presentations are curated by SANS Fellow, Ed Skoudis, author of Counter Hack Reloaded: A Step-by-Step Guide to Computer Attacks and Effective Defenses (2nd Edition), and are designed around a central offensive security theme.

Regardless if you are in red teaming, penetration testing, forensics, or defensive information security, this event will give you the opportunity to broaden your knowledge base in a one-of-a-kind event.

Don't miss this chance to get away from the office, gain a fresh perspective, network with like-minded individuals, play NetWars, challenge yourself with a custom CtF from Counter Hack (makers of NetWars, CyberCity, and the SANS Holiday Hack Challenge), and learn the skills you'll need to face the attacks coming your way.

And if that isn't enough to convince you, here is what an attendee from last year had to say about the event...

"The knowledge and breadth of the speakers are well beyond many of the other events. The Summits by SANS bring together some of the best minds in security. I always learn new things to bring back to my team. It is money well spent." - Peter Kuzmiskas, Prudential

Bonus Sessions:

  • 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 people can build their skills while having friendly and competitive fun!
  • Coin-A-Palooza: Here is your chance to earn up to five SANS Pen Test Challenge Coins that are normally only available to the winners of the six-day CtF in each of our courses. If you've ever taken a SANS Pen Test course and either earned your coin or didn't, this is your chance to earn up to five coins by participating in SANS NetWars.
  • Super-Secret Challenge: Last year, HackFest hit the road for a tour of Mount Vernon. After the tour, we had the entire Mount Vernon Museum to ourselves and worked in teams to solve a series of fun puzzles and crypto-challenges designed by the creators of NetWars and CyberCity, all while enjoying drinks, home-made cookies, and ice cream. Stay tuned for this year's plans!
