What:
Security Innovation and ISSA are proud to present a day of networking, food and fun for ISSA Portland chapter members and others in the community. This special event will provide attendees with the opportunity to grow their security knowledge via a fun and interactive “find the vulnerabilities” game. Participants will take the reins in an expert-guided training session leveraging cheat sheets, attack tables, min-labs, and breakout sessions to learn how hackers break into websites using common vulnerabilities, insecure practices (like weak passwords) and more!

This event will provide value for everyone from a non-coder with zero hacking experience to a seasoned penetration tester. There are challenges for all skill levels and interest built into the game and we will have expert help on hand to help anyone who wants it.
