Red Team Blue Team Exercise: How to Think Like a Hacker

April 6th - 1 to 5 pm (Lunch/Setup Networking 12 - 1)



This is a hands-on workshop where you will put into practice those things you may have read about or covered in a class. Our workshops are intended for you to leave with working knowledge of the topic, whether you'll be taking it back to the office or if you're applying for a new job. 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. *Even if you don't have experience you can still learn alot of new things!! So sign up! 

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.
