Altus Consulting is excited to sponsor the BSides NOVA Happy Hour held on February 25 from 5:00 – 7:00 PM in the CIT Atrium. BSides attendees, please join us at 5PM for some tasty eats and great drinks.
BSides is a “community-driven framework for building events for and by information security community members. The goal is to expand the spectrum of conversation beyond the traditional confines of space and time. It creates opportunities for individuals to both present and participate in an intimate atmosphere that encourages collaboration. It is an intense event with discussions, demos, and interaction from participants. It is where conversations for the next-big-things are happening.”
BSidesNoVA is a Cyber Security un-conference that will be hosted at Center for Innovative Technology in Herndon, VA on Saturday, February 25th, 2017 and will be attended by nearly 400 students and industry professionals. Speakers will cover topics ranging from the state of the cybersecurity industry to bleeding edge research on vulnerabilities, exploits, protection, and response. The featured keynote speakers will be announced in October.
In addition to the talks, multiple activities will be available to conference attendees such as a Capture-theFlag event which challenges attendees to defeat security controls, and a series of Penetration Testing Workshops which teach the fundamentals of hacking, and a car Hack demonstration. The conference will conclude with an Entrepreneur Lightning Talk Event hosted at the MACH37 space which will aim to promote innovation in the local security and start up community through individual mentorship.
We’re a 100% volunteer organized event, put on by and for the community, and we strive to keep information free.
