We'll be testing the Storm CTF Competition at the next two ISSA meetings prior to Infosecon. Bring a laptop and help us get the bugs out of the system before the tournament! You'll get access to the scoreboard and chat mechanism, as well as the Blue team side prior to Infosecon. For the best results, bring a laptop with Kali, or a Kali virtual machine. No competition flags will be displayed or available during this time, only the "Learners" section will be available for play.

 Title:  Cyber Security

  Evan Strickland


Cisco ATA’s US SOC Manager. I have been working in InfoSec operations for 11 years in a Security Operations Centers (SOC) and see the disciple of education as the engine of InfoSec proficiency. I took part in the development of the CCNA CyberOps certification and training material; while continuously working on SOC improvements and operations. My day-to-day is to wake up, find the bad guys, see the changes in techniques, determine the patterns, train for the future, and find them again tomorrow. I love bringing my wife and two girls along with me on this journey; who are my blessing and my joy.



There aren’t a lot of methods to easily entering Cyber Security; particularly analytics. We’re a young industry, but one where maturity is expected immediately; because there is an immediate need. How do you get the skills, when there isn’t a lot of good direction? To get you there, this talk will help you:

  • Understand why Cyber Security Exists
  • Determine what needs this industry fills
  • Understand the history of the industry
  • By providing a guideline of how to grow your skills
  • By pointing you to resources to hit the ground running
  • Understand the coolness of the industry, by a micro-analysis session
