Cyber-RAID and B-Sides KC

In just a few short weeks, Cyber-RAID and B-Sides KC will be happening. That's September 16th and 17th at the Downtown KC Marriott.

Cyber-RAID is a live attack and defense exercise. Cost to participate is $100. At time of writing, there are still 3 Blue Team (Defender) and 20 Red Team (Attacker) seats remaining. It's recommended that you have at least casual information security experience if you're going to sign up. Otherwise, I believe spectators will be allowed. I don't know the details on that. This exercise runs all day on September 16th and until 1pm on September 17th.

The Security B-Sides KC Conference will be happening at the same venue all day Friday. This is a highly dynamic conference where everyone is a participant, not just a face in a lecture hall. There is no cost to participate in this event. There are still slots open for discussions if you feel like leading one. If things go as planned, I'll be bringing my Evil WiFi talk.

One last bit... Deviant Ollam from TOOOL wants to come visit our local hackerspace and give a talk on Locksport (and who knows what else!) at Security B-Sides KC. He'll be staying with a CCCKC member while he's in town, but he can't afford the plane ticket out here. If you can pitch in a few dollars to help cover Deviant's airfare, contact jur1st at cowtowncomputercongress dot org.

Hope to see you there!



  1. I saw this announcement on LinkedIn. I am going to try and get my company to pay the cost. Back in the day I used to go to 2600 meetings. I can't believe there aren't more attackers. Man, attacking is where it's at even if you don't do that normally. I'm betting you guys will let attackers join in for free? :)

  2. I blame the sticker shock personally. Shakes fist at H3vnsnt.

  3. I'll cya all there. I signed up for the Blue Team as it is more job related.
