SANS Pen Test Hackfest Twitter Contest

We're delighted to announce a new Twitter-based contest here with a fantastic prize. And, participating in this one is really easy. Check it out.

On November 13 through 20, SANS will be running our second annual Pen Test Hackfest training event in Washington DC. We throw everything we've got into this extra special event, including:

  • Two days of amazing, in-depth talks by leading minds of the industry, including the authors of some of the best pen test tools on the planet, including SET, Armitage, and more.
  • Six days of training, with five different classes to choose from.
  • Three nights of NetWars Tournament challenges for hands-on fun and learning.
  • One night of CyberCity missions, where you'll be defending critical infrastructures against attacks, preventing city-wide mayhem.
  • Coin-a-palooza: A chance to earn up to FOUR SANS Pen Test coins for your collection.
  • One Super Secret Special Evening: On Nov 14, we'll be taking a mind-blowing trip.

The prize for our new Twitter contest is free admission to the two-day session at the start of the Hackfest on Nov 13-14. You'll experience some great talks, learn super useful information, participate in a NetWars evening Nov 13, and join us on the Super Secret Special Evening Nov 14.
