Black Hat USA 2013 Logo

Hard to believe it’s that time of year again, but here we are. Time to start gearing up for the madness that is the annual trek to Vegas for Black Hat USA and DEFCON. As we do with most of our prizes, we kindly ask that if someone can’t utilize the prize, then kindly decline. We’d always prefer someone benefiting from a prize instead of it sitting unused. So after several tries, I found someone who fit the bill – participates on the site and can make it to Vegas. To make it even better, this will be his first BH! I love my job. Here’s a short description of what EH-Net member, caissyd, will get to enjoy:

Black Hat USA is the most intensely technical and relevant global information security event in the world, encouraging collaboration between academia, leaders in the public and private sectors, and world-class researchers. Nowhere else in the world will you experience the same caliber of conversations and continuing education, within a strictly vendor-neutral and friendly environment. Each year, the brightest minds in security come together in Las Vegas for six days of learning, networking and high-intensity skills building. Back for its 16th year, the Black Hat USA Briefings and Trainings will take place July 27-August 1, 2013.

Participation is the ONLY way to win. Start a thread that sparks lots of interest; share thoughts and experiences; spread the word of EH-Net to your social networks; help a newbie… quality is more important than quantity.

February 2013 Free Giveaway Winner of SANS CyberCon Training

| March 30, 2013

We Have a Winner!

SANS CyberCon 2013 ImageIn a slight twist but not completely out of the ordinary, I have an announcement. As most of you know, I pick the winners not only based on participation but also on the ability to utilize the prize. I have also in the past taken special requests and rearranged winners to meet the needs of those who contribute the most. This usually takes place behind the scenes and is often the reason it looks as though someone who didn’t participate the most wins. Because many others couldn’t utilize the prize, and I thus had to keep going down the list. That being said, I want to continue to be fair. Last month’s winner was absolutely deserving but couldn’t use the prize. So I’m making an executive decision and announcing that UNIX will receive the seat at SANS CyberCon beginning April 22 with his choice of the following:

- SEC401: Security Essentials Bootcamp Style ($4,645)
- SEC504: Hacker Techniques, Exploits & Incident Handling ($4,845)
- SEC575: Mobile Device Security and Ethical Hacking ($4,845)
- FOR408: Computer Forensic Investigations – Windows In-Depth ($4,845)
- MGT414: SANS +S Training Program for the CISSP Certification Exam ($3,995)

SANS is also offer two NEW Audit courses at SANS CyberCon, running back-to-back.
- AUD444: Auditing Security and Controls of Active Directory and Windows ($2400)
- AUD445: Auditing Security and Controls of Oracle Databases ($2400)

So yes, this means that there’s still a chance to win last month’s prize of a full version of Metasploit Pro with 1 year of support. I will be contacting deserving EH-Netters very soon to give this prize away. I’ll make the announcement in the forum thread for the Holiday Giveaway. Congrats and good luck to all of you as the prizes continue throughout 2013.

PS – If you didn’t win, you still get a prize of 5% Off w/ Coupon Code: EHN_05

Participation is the ONLY way to win. Start a thread that sparks lots of interest; share thoughts and experiences; help a newbie… quality is more important than quantity.
