SkyDogCon was born from a very simple idea. “We (as a community) can do better!” A group of volunteers realized that between them they had DECADES of combined conference attendance in common and their combined experiences had let them see what worked, what didn’t, what people raved about and what was a total waste of time and money. Every year the staff meets in virtual and real places to rant, rave, discuss, and preach ideas about what a con should have. At the end, decisions are made and plans executed. In short, SkyDogCon is the amalgamation of everything the staff has seen that works at other cons, plus some extras that take things to the next level. SkyDogCon staff members freely give of their time and talent to help run this con, a con run by hackers for hackers.
Each team of up to 4 individuals needs to register and will have to compete twice to win. As the red team, you'll have the opportunity to break into an office, gather information and use it to stage your attack. As the blue team, you'll have to protect the office and systems from the nefarious reds. Scoring will be based on the steps you take and how well you perform in the test. Never done something like this before? Make a team! We'll have different level challenges for everyone.
