06/29/2011

Hacker training leader, Advanced Security, partners with the EC-Council to promote a highly technical Washington DC area based penetration testing and security conference called the CAST Summit Washington DC.

Online PR News – 29-June-2011 – – Industry leader in hacker training, Advanced Security by Academy of Computer Education, is proud to announce their Premier Partnership in the upcoming security conference in the Washington, DC area. The CAST Summit by EC Council is coming to the Bethesda Hyatt in Bethesda, MD from August 22-25, 2011. This conference is expected to be the best, technical based security conference in the DC area. The CAST Summit 2011 will boast some of the most respected names in the penetration testing industry including Joe McCray, Tim Pierson, Wayne Burke and more. Some of the material that the conference will cover includes Advanced Penetration Testing, Mobile Forensics and Advanced Application Security.

The Washington, DC area holds a handful of security conferences throughout the year, but until this point, most of these are for entry level IT security personnel. The EC Council is the premier name in the IT security certification industry and its flagship Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) certification is perhaps the hottest certification to ever be offered in security. The CEH certification has spread so quickly, that now certified people are looking for the next level of training and information in penetration testing and hacking.

EC Council began its run at security conferences with the launch of the Hacker Halted conference a few years ago. Each year the conference has grown in size and strength of presenters / trainers. The CAST Summit is meant for a more technical crowd than the Hacker Halted Conference. Hacker Halted is a conference where a novice can pick up skill sets and learn industry information and bump themselves to the mid-level. The CAST Summit is advanced training only. Therefore, anyone with a Certified Ethical Hacker level skill set and above can enjoy the deep content explored at this event.

Advanced Security by Academy of Computer Education is the leading EC Council training provider in the world per the ATC of the Year Award in 2010. This Washington DC CAST Summit event also takes place in Advanced Security’s backyard, as the company is based in Greenbelt, Maryland and has another location in Ashburn, Virginia. Advanced Security CEO Ralph P. Sita, Jr., CPA had this to say about the event: “We couldn’t be more excited for an event like this to come to our area. DC has needed a conference with this level of depth because the area in general is more security focused than the majority of the country. We are glad we could be apart of it.”
