Cybersecurity Workshop

*Exploit with Metasploit*

Join us for the Women's Society of Cyberjutsu (WSC) Cybersecurity Workshop hosted from our Washington, DC location. This is a hands-on, practical workshop where you will put into practice those things you may have read or covered in a class. This is also a great way to keep your skills fresh if you’re a veteran.

Every workshop addresses beginner and advanced topic material. Beginners are encouraged to watch and learn as much as possible even though you may not have a clue. Exposure to new tools and techniques by watching will advance your learning process a lot quicker than trying to learn on your own. You will get to ask questions and see how it's done in the real world. Advanced attendees are encouraged to share and help answer "noob" questions as much as possible so everyone can learn from them.


Metasploit, developed by Rapid7, is an exploit framework based on ruby. It is a popular tool for penetration testers but is not the only tool around. We will use Metasploit from within Backtrack for the workshop.

    Good... if anyone is available to provide more hands on help it would help move the class along. Or.... maybe break it up into two shorter sessions. 1 session getting set up and another session doing the actual metasploits. Also, if everyone has the same OS it would make life easier.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
