TakeDownCon 2013 Huntsville

We adjusted the conference rates to be sure that more Cyber Security Professionals can join us, advance their knowledge and stay on the cutting edge of the always impending threats.

Albuquerque, NM (PRWEB) March 20, 2013

The Rocket City TakeDownCon hosted by top EC-Council partner Dynetics, Inc. will deliver a comprehensive analysis of Cyber Security through EC-Council’s industry-leading training and thought-provoking keynotes in two focused tracks. Delegates will spend Day 1 on the Attack, learning how even the most protected systems can be breached. Day 2 will be dedicated to Defense, and delegates will learn if their defense mechanisms are on par to thwart nefarious and persistent attacks. Keynote speaker Paul Coggin, an Internetwork Consulting Solutions Architect at Dynetics, Inc. will present “Bending and Twisting Networks” which he says, “will explain network attack vectors that an adversary can use to control, and influence network traffic flows and exfiltrate data. Suggested defensive methods and techniques for monitoring and protecting against the outlined attack vectors will be discussed.”

Live,instructor-led training in the industry-leading EC-Council suite of certifications, including their flagship Certified Ethical Hacker, Certified Hacking Forensics Instructor, Computer Security Analyst, and Licensed Penetration Tester will also be available at the Conference. Other Advanced Hacking courses will be offered in areas such as Advanced Metasploit, Advanced Mobile Hacking and Forensics, and Advanced Network Defense among others.

The Rocket City TakeDownCon will give those hit by sequestration or other budgetary restrictions the opportunity to gain valuable certifications and training at a non-prohibitive rate. “In this economy, stretching your training budget is the name of the game!” says, Eric Lopez, EC-Council’s Senior Director. Mr. Lopez went on to say, “We adjusted the conference rates to be sure that more Cyber Security Professionals can join us, advance their knowledge and stay on the cutting edge of the always impending threats."
