Overview

Did you know that you can replicate enterprise servers, workstations, appliances, and sensors at home on a shoestring budget? This webcast focuses on how to build a home lab that may even exceed most organization's defense capabilities. We will be discussing open source projects, hardware solutions, virtualization, and more. Building a home lab is one of the quickest methods to levelling up as an all-around defender.

This webcast is the second of a three-part series aimed to help you level up in becoming an all-around defender. In this series, we will be helping you to define what it means to be an all-around defender, as well as how to get hands-on experience by building your personal lab. The first part of the series shares Ismael and Justin's life journey into becoming an all-around defender. The second and third part of the series aims to share how to build your own home lab to mirror enterprise level defenses.
