Building a Virtual Cyber Security Playground

Have you ever wanted to test out security tools but didn’t have an environment to do so?  Have you wanted to try the same techniques that hackers use to better understand how to defend against such attacks but didn’t have a safe place for testing? Are you tired of going to expensive training classes only to find out that you never get a chance to play at home?  This session will show you how to setup a lab on a shoe string budget.  You will be empowered so that you can practice on the go in order to quickly and efficiently study for the CEH exam.  If that is not enough to convince you, everyone in attendance will be entered into a raffle for a chance to win a free 32 Gig USB thumbstick with a pre-built security lab.

    The lab and interactive lecture were great. It was nice to DO while we learned. I look forward to more advanced lectures.

    Hi Kelly!
    Is it okay to bring a portable drive to copy the VM's for home use?

    • Kelly B.

      Yes. We're actually going to be setting the VM's up in the class from ISOs. The ISOs only take up about 6 gigs so they will fit on a flash drive.

    While we provide laptops for use at the meeting, you should probably bring your own laptop to this meeting so you can continue to the use the VMs we setup at home.
