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.
Lunch and prep is 11:00 - 12:00
Workshop is 12:00 - 5:00
Have you ever wondered just how secure your wireless connection really is? Wireless technology has quickly spread from coffee shops to large scale enterprise systems. Everywhere you go there is “Free Wi-Fi.” Most businesses also support some type of wireless connection throughout their offices. In this workshop we will learn to perform the steps used in wireless penetration testing such as cracking the keys and gain access to a variety of increasingly secure wireless access points. From WEP to the trusted WPA2, nothing is safe from attack with the right tools and the right motivation.
We are excited to have Dustin Shirley present this workshop. Dustin is an Information Assurance Engineer with Convergence Technologies Consulting. Dustin has over 12 years of experience in the Information Security field including roles in Security Analysis, Intrusion Analysis, Digital Forensics, and Vulnerability Analysis and Research.
