IT security professionals are lining up to attend the new leading hacking and penetration testing conference in the Washington DC area lead by substantial industry experts.
Online PR News – 30-July-2011 – – In less than one month, Washington DC area IT security professionals will be focused on attending a leading advanced hacking and security conference, the CAST Summit, Washington DC. This conference will feature some of the biggest names in the hacking and penetration testing training industry and they will be presenting advanced skill set training.
The EC-Council, the leading hacking certification company, has been providing a great security and hacking conference experience since it launched the Hacker Halted conference years ago. Since that time, they realized that the penetration testing community needed an event dedicated to developing a higher level of skill sets for the growing number of security professionals that already have a baseline level of hacking ability. There is currently an abundance of security conferences available, the DC area has its fair share of them. Most security conferences are built to focus on providing training and presentations for “newbies” or beginners to the field so that they can gain the attention of the masses. Due to this, the demand for the conference that is developed for the higher level professional, at an affordable price needed to be offered, the EC-Council seized that opportunity.
The CAST Summit in DC is entirely different than the normal security conference. The EC-Council is satisfying the need to bring advanced training to the people in the hacking and penetration testing industry through this CAST Summit conference. The plan was to gather some of the main experts in the industry and have them put together courses that focus on specific skill sets from a mid to advanced level. These experts include people like Joe McCray, Tim Pierson and Wayne Burke. The EC-Council put the course production in these experts hands and they will also be the people who train the attendees at the event. Therefore, attendees will be getting the most cutting edge and advanced training available from the biggest names in the industry.
The conference is already proving to be highly desired as the current level of tickets sold is growing very rapidly. Since the event will be held at the Hyatt in Bethesda, MD, tickets are limited. Regular price total cost for the conference is about $2,500.
