WISP+BishopFox - Network Penetration Testing Workshop


Women in Security and Privacy (WISP) and BishopFox would like to invite you to a live demonstration and hands-on workshop that will introduce you to the top three tools needed to get started in network penetration testing. We'll cover how to scan for vulnerabilities with the Nmap scripting engine, create reverse and bind shells with Netcat, and scanning and exploiting a variety of network services with Metasploit.

By the end of the evening you will be port scanning, creating payloads, and popping shells. This technical workshop is meant to familiarize you with the tools needed to continue your journey into ethical hacking. Take your new skills to Capture The Flag (CTF) competitions or scan your home network for vulnerabilities. 

Laptop required with the ability to install software required. Attendees will receive instructions on setting up the lab environment on their laptops before the event.

The presentation will include an interactive discussion and will be followed by networking and sharing of best practices, including beverages and food provided by HackerOne.
