Virtual Vegas is exclusively focused on hardcore technical training in offensive security skills that matter to real security professionals, from corporate network defenders to pen-testers, red teams and vulnerability researchers.

Ringzer0 Training, the leading provider of advanced cybersecurity training, announces the opening of registration for Virtual Vegas, an intense two-week hands-on training event (July 31 - August 13, 2021) that covers a variety of important offensive security skills, including hacking automotive systems, IoT, Windows Internals and RISC-V, plus cryptography attacks, malware reversing and much more.

“As with all of our Ringzer0 events, Virtual Vegas is exclusively focused on hardcore technical training in offensive security skills that matter to real security professionals, from corporate network defenders to pen-testers, red teams and vulnerability researchers,” said Saumil Shah, co-founder of Ringzer0 Training. “Unlike many of the more mainstream infosec conferences which tend to water down their training classes in order to appeal to a broader audience, our training remains completely focused on advanced topics and intense, hands-on-keyboard training, so that students can get past the learning curve and build up skills quickly that they can deploy in the field by the end of the class.”

Ringzer0 Training is designed for cybersecurity professionals who would rather forego the traditional conference experience – high-level talks, speaker panels, sponsored presentations, networking sessions – to focus only on what matters most: hardcore offensive skill-building.


Virtual Vegas includes 19 deep-dive training courses, which cover a wide range of critical subjects for infosec professionals. Trainings are delivered in a combination of live instructor-led lectures and self-paced hands-on exercises, complete with regular instructor office hours, an active Discord channel for group discussion and instructor/teaching-aide Q&A and support. Ringzer0 has also adjusted the live portions of the training classes to better accommodate students in different time zones around the world. All trainings are taught by leading industry experts, including many former members of military and government agencies.
