Live Training in St. Kitts and Nevis

Re-Discover Your Inner Pirate

Offensive Security

Johnny here, again…I’m excited to announce that Muts and I will be co-presenting the second Pentesting With Backtrack course in December 3-7, 2012 in St. Kitts!

[ Matteo Memelli will be training Advanced Windows Exploitation (AWE) in St. Kitts too. ]

I’m excited on a couple different levels.

First, I’m excited to get back to St. Kitts. Maybe it’s the inner pirate calling me back to the Caribbean, or maybe it’s just that the place is so exotic and beautiful. I enjoyed the breathtaking views with white beaches, mountains, and electric blue water so much that on some days I wonder why I haven’t just packed up and moved there. It will be so great to see my Kittitian friends, enjoy another pig roast and lobster roast and take in the cool sea breeze on the deck of the Catamaran during the all-expense-paid cruise to Nevis marking the end of the course.

Second, I’m excited about the course itself. It was such a rush seeing the students just blossom before my eyes. They all came in at different levels of skill and experience, but each one of them came away stronger and more well-rounded pen testers with lots of new tricks up their sleeves. The CTF was especially thrilling as they put their skills to the test, conquered a few machines, and learned where their weaknesses were. At the end of the course, each student seemed to have gained confidence and everyone was excited to get into the Offsec labs to learn, play, and discover.

Third, I’m excited to do what I can to improve the course. In the past few months, I’ve been poring over the course material looking for ways to smooth out the presentation and fill in some of the gaps I picked up on. It’s my goal to up the ante as much as possible while keeping the amazing balance of the course intact. The students should always Try Harder™, but I want to be sure their foundation is a bit stronger before we push them over the edge to try out their wings. I also want to make sure the stronger students aren’t bored, so I’ll be working through the “extra mile” activities to keep them challenged.

I will admit to being a bit intimidated about the course, though. As you know from my previous posts, some of the material was new to me. So as I’m going over the course with a fine-toothed comb to improve it, I’ll also be digging in and doing some hardcore studying and playing to fill in the gaps in my own knowledge so that I know exactly what I’m doing. I also want to be able to field tough questions from the sharpshooters and be able to properly diagnose any problems the students might run into.

There is still time left to register although seats will fill up fast, so if you’re interested, now’s the time. Head on over to the Pentesting with BackTrack course page and register. I’m looking forward to seeing you in the Caribbean in December!
