Do you choose the path of the attacker or the defender? Come and play in our virtual battleground. 
Every day, InfoSec professionals like you are fighting a war to keep malicious outsiders at bay.  It can be a grind, and you may wonder what you can do to hone your skills.  
Curious about what it's like to jump the fence and try your hand at attacking? In that case, choose the Red Team.  Does it feel like these Capture the Flag games always tilt in favor of the attackers?
Not this time.  If you don't feel up to attacking, stand and hold the line for the defenders. Will you take up a position and declare they will go no further?  Then choose the Blue Team.

This year, ISSA Ventura County, in partnership with Core Security and Palo Alto Networks will provide a virtual environment and allow you to choose the form of your destroyer.
Penetrate systems as the Red Team to find information and data flags to earn points.  Thwart the attackers and shore up your systems as the Blue Team to earn points. Those who earn the most points will earn prizes.  But it couldn't be that simple, could it? 
The Red Team attackers will get a short head start to begin to attack the business environment, but it won't be easy.  Systems will be patched and monitored in real-time.  This will give the Blue Team defenders time and intelligence to release and guide the hounds.  
Join us in crying "HAVOC!" to let slip the dogs of war.  Each team will get a short (30 minute) intro to learn how to use each team's toolsets before the mayhem begins in earnest.  Pricing for this event (includes breakfast and lunch) is $10 for ISSA members, and $20 for non-members.
