Eight years ago some friends got together and decided to bring the InfoSec talks they saw at bigger InfoSec Conferences to a small con in the Mountain State. They created the 304Geeks, planned the first Hack3rCon, and a tradition was born.
Hack3rCon is a state of mind - Great talks, great friends, and lots of fun. SecureWV continues this tradition and builds on the foundation laid by Hack3rCon. The SecureWV Team has over 5 years experience running and hosting the latest InfoSec ideas and presentations and has established friendships and working relationships with the best and brightest in the region.
This year SecureWV and Hack3rCon will be running three tracks: Speakers, Teachers and Forensicators. The Speakers track will be the "normal" talks and presentations that we all know and love. These will be 1-hour blocks which will be recorded and made available online as usual.
The Teachers track is designed to help those who are new to the InfoSec world learn the skills and techniques needed to be more effective in their current and future endeavors. Classes will be 3 to 4 hour blocks and offer theory and lots of hands on training.
For those Forensicators out there (you know who you are), we will be parternering with the Marshall University Digital Forensics department to offer Forensics classes. We will also be includeing a few other Foresics technicians from WV to add to this new learning track.
We will also be working with IronGeek (Adrian Crenshaw - the InfoSec Video Guru) to stream the Speakers talks live on the Internet.
