Participants will exploit their way through hundreds of vulnerabilities to assess cybersecurity preparedness

Wilmington, MA – October 19, 2018 – Security Innovation will be contributing their web application cyber range at Executive Women’s Forum and IDGA’s Homeland Security Week events as part of October’s National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM). Both events are part of the company’s commitment providing a fun but effective way to raise awareness of Web application security.

IDGA’s 13th Annual Homeland Security Week is the nation’s foremost event addressing challenges at the forefront of homeland security operations, policy, and procurements. This summit focuses on key themes such as protecting our nations’ infrastructure and securing America in times of global instability. Security Innovation will host a “capture the flag” contest during the summit using its CMD+CTRL cyber range, a unique, immersive environment where players hunt for security holes in a vulnerable web application. The event will take place October 22-24 in Hyattsville, MD, details can be found at: Homeland Security Week

"CMD+CTRL is ideal for development teams to train and develop skills, but anyone involved in keeping your organization’s data secure can play - from developers and managers and even CISOs.” - Marie Di Trapani, Director of Government and Defense Programs, IDGA and Producer of Homeland Security Week.

For the second year in a row, Security Innovation is bringing its cyber range to the Executive Women’s Forum (EWF). Building on last year’s success, Security Innovation will run 4 different hands-on workshops for attendees to test their skills identifying web app vulnerabilities.
