New this year: a capture the flag event will take place during the conference hosted by the Virginia Cyber Range.
Security Tactical Operations presented by Kevin Johnson of Secure Ideas.
Tactical Security Ops is a hands-on class that provides the basic building blocks for a student to create their own security operations discipline. Students will spend more than half of the course in labs implementing security tools, analyzing log data and network traffic. Class discussions will focus on the stages of security operations and how to adapt tools and processes to their own environments whether they are large or small.
Laptop with 4-8GB of RAM, 50GB of space and a wireless NIC. VMWare (workstation, player, or fusion) is required! A virtual machine will be distributed at the beginning of class and it does not play well with Oracle Virtual Box.
Students must have a good understanding TCP/IP, Windows and Linux/UNIX systems administration. Proficiency with Linux and UNIX text editing tools (vi editor) is suggested. This is a very hands-on course and it is strongly recommended that students are comfortable with using command line based utilities.
