BSidesROC Training Day is a complementary event the day before the main conference. We've set up a full day of training opportunities for students in various subjects. 


YARA Training

This ability makes it a valuable sleuthing tool in your arsenal to identify, understand and ultimately prevent unwanted influences.

CERT Network Pentesting Training

Description: This course covers a broad range of information security concepts for many different skills levels. This one-day training session will enable students to go through a complete vulnerability assessment, exploitation, mitigation, and validation of mitigation strategies on a high-fidelity, realistic virtual network. There are several training objectives:

  • Scanning and enumeration of the network ( nmap and Nessus scanning )
  • Exploitation to validate vulnerabilities found ( Kali Linux, Metasploit )
  • Mitigation of validated vulnerabilities ( knowledge of Linux, Windows, SNMP, patch management, Access control lists, host based firewalls )
  • Validation of mitigation – ( nessus scanning comparing reports to ensure mitigation )

There’s also a bonus – find a hidden machine, find the vulnerabilities, exploit it and determine it’s purpose.
