• Join us at CyberJAR to learn how to keep Hacking Away!

What is CyberJAR?

These days, when you open the lid of your computer or network, you never know what you'll find inside... Come join us for an afternoon of fun and education.  You and your team will be pointed at a target of networks and computers that emulate a realistic corporate environment.  The challenge is to break through the cyber defenses and disrupt the company, or capture their secrets.  You'll learn what the bad guys are up to - and how to defend against them, to keep Hacking Away.

This is an entry-level and learning event.

No hacking experience required.  If you are already an advanced hacker, you will not enjoy participating.

Also, it's a team event.

IT Security managers, auditors, consultants can come and learn about the technical side of hacking.   While sys-admins, network-admins, and helpdesk agents can learn a lot from the IT Security people who attend.  You may get to teach the managers a few technical tricks, while they help you understand the big picture.

  • If you're a computer expert already, but need to learn more about IT Security, you will really enjoy this event.
  • If you're already a hacker-ninja-guru, this will not be a challenge.   (Contact us for more advanced events.)
