It has been an amazing first day at the Black Hat USA main conference. As expected, thousands upon thousands of security professionals arrived at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center to witness the infosec spectacle that is Black Hat.
Before closing the evening, let’s take a quick look back at what happened at Briefings Day 1.
Two decades on from its inception, one of the biggest security events in the world – Black Hat USA – has again kicked off in Vegas for a week of unbridled infosec indulgence, and we’re psyched to take part in the festivities.
We’re excited to tell all of you that we made it to the 26th spot in the Top 100 Information Security Blogs!
The blogs included in the list, which came from a pool of thousands of other infosec blogs, were ranked based on the following criteria:
- Google reputation and Google search ranking
- Influence and popularity on Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites
- Quality and consistency of posts
- Feedspot’s editorial team and expert review
We’re delighted to be recognized as one of the best sources of security information, news, and of course, training – and we have all of you to thank for getting eLearnSecurity this shiny new badge.
In May 2017, we launched the third edition of our MISSIONS. With the stakes so high, and with one of the biggest security events calling, enrollments (and thus, entries) came pouring in from the very first week. Now, two months and hundreds of entries later, the time has come to find out who among you will be headed to the Sin City for the ultimate infosec experience.
If you’ve been: a) thinking of taking matters into your own hands and testing your own web apps; b) trying desperately to get your bug bounty ranking up; or c) taking a web app pentesting course and in need of some clarifications to be addressed, then it would be in your very best interest to join us on June 27th 2017, at 1PM ET for our fifth technical webinar this 2017: Stepping Through Your First Web App Penetration Test.
When we Refreshed the Mobile Application Security and Penetration Testing training course last March, we also launched an iPhone 7 (PRODUCT)RED giveaway to go with it.
Earlier this month, the winner was finally drawn, and it was Kimiaki Naitoh from Japan who came away as the lucky winner.
We get it, choosing which IT security training course to enroll in is tough. Aside from having to figure out which ones are the best suited to provide you with the specific skills you want, you’d also have to make sure they match your abilities, as well as your schedule.
Coming off the back of Fuzzing with Google‘s success – this month, eLearnSecurity‘s technical webinar series returns for its latest installment.
We invite you to join us on May 16th 2017, at 1PM ET, as we take on one of the most widely used tools in web app pentesting: Burp Suite.
After flying around Dubai, getting students #shirtified internationally, and sending out a special-edition iPhone 7, we are now on the latest edition of our globetrotting MISSIONS.
This time, we head westward to yet another desert – the Mojave – wherein lies the fabled City of Sin.
The first four months of 2017 has, without a doubt, brought plenty of excitement for eLearnSecurity – we flew in our MISSION: Dubai winner for a visit, hosted three filled-to-the-brim technical webinars, sponsored a bunch of security competitions, and of course, gave MASPTv2 a fresh new update along with a (RED)-hot giveaway!
