A Sneak Peek at hack_it 2022

We’re super excited to announce that hack_it is back! hack_it teaches hacker tradecraft and helps us defenders see cybersecurity from a different perspective. This year's event will be held November 14 - 16

We host hack_it not only because we're huge cybersecurity nerds but also because cyber education and awareness are things we're super passionate about. We're all about providing the community with actionable cyber training and practical resources like hack_it. 

October may be dedicated to cybersecurity awareness, but we all know cyber awareness and training can't just happen one month out of the year. 😉 Cue hack_it 2022! 

What Is hack_it?

Just in case you’ve never attended before, hack_it is our free, multi-day training event dedicated to understanding hacker tradecraft. Throughout this three-day event, you'll hear from our CEO (Kyle Hanslovan), Senior Security Researcher (John Hammond), Researcher Tech Lead (Dave Kleinatland) and some of our friends in the industry as they walk you through these educational sessions that aim to help us all better understand modern threat actors and tradecraft. 

(Optional) 0-Day Training Lab

Looking for a more hands-on approach? We’re bringing back our 0-Day training lab! In this half-day session, we’ll look at both sides of the cyber game and figure out how to identify and respond to attacks and breaches. 

This lab is 100% optional but does require you to sign up to save your spot. The cost of this session ($99) covers your entire virtual setup.
