We, as security practitioners, need to stand on our own two feet when it comes to evaluating vendor and tool capabilities.
Well folks, we’ve been thrilled by the response that we’ve received to our GameOn! Security Challenge since it launched around Black Hat / DEF CON in late July. We’ve got 55 active players so far in various stages of scenario development and submission, covering a broad range of industries, job titles, and experience levels. We’re excited to see the active participation from a good number of students as well, aspiring security professionals who can put their ideas to work and test their effectiveness today even without an IT department or a access to high-end security tools.
