Date/Time: 12p - 6p PST

This is a hands-on workshop where you will put into practice those things you may have read about or covered in a class. This is also a great opportunity to meet other like-minded women and to keep your skills fresh if you're a veteran! You will also earn continuing education credits towards your certification renewal.  

Level: 200 

Level 100 courses are designed for students with little to no previous IT Security experience, or no experience in the topic(s) being covered.  These courses are meant to be introductory level, or provide the training for entry level certifications.

Level 200 courses are designed for students with some security experience, looking to advance or learn in new topics.

Level 300 courses are designed to offer expert level courses and training on specific topics.  Typically, a general understanding and knowledge of the topic being presented is an expected prerequisite.  

**No one is excluded from attending a course at a level higher than their current experience.  However, the course will move at the pace designed for the level of the course.
