Cybertexas 2016 Sneak Preview

Cybertexas 2016 Sneak Preview

CyberTexas 2016 is kicking off on August 23, and the Delta Risk team will be front and center as a Gold sponsor and featured presenter. The seventh annual program will take place in downtown Alamo City at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center.

This conference is hosted by The San Antonio Public-Private Cyber Community and the Federal Business Council (FBC) in conjunction with leaders from federal and local government agencies, industries, and academia.

CyberTexas provides an ongoing platform for continued education, skills development, and cyber security job creation. This event also serves to foster relationships with other U.S. and international geographies focused on cyber ecosystem development.

Conference Highlights

Perspectives on Cyber Security for Boards and Business Executives

Board of Directors and senior executives are increasingly becoming more involved in cyber security planning and strategy. Chris Fogle, one of the founders of Delta Risk, will discuss the most pressing issues boards and senior executives are concerned about and present examples of appropriate near-term investments they should consider.

Insight Capture the Flag – Presented by Delta Risk

Capture the Flag (CTF) events are excellent proving grounds for cyber security professionals to measure and compare their hacking skills. However, not all conferences enable participants to take part.

The Delta Risk Insight Capture the Flag event gives you a hands-on opportunity to learn the ropes as a beginner or jump into seven different challenges to test your hacking prowess.

The best part? All you need is a laptop with a recent version of Firefox or Chrome to access the network (wired or wireless) and the Kali distro we have set up for you to use.

For attendees, this is a can’t-miss opportunity to gain more insight into CTF events and network with peers. Check out additional event details.

Hall of Honor Reception

Delta Risk and other sponsors will recognize distinguished leaders in the Texas cyber community while cocktails and hors d’oeuvres are served. The Hall of Honor Reception is another prime networking event for cyber security professionals to attend.

Exhibit Hall

The trade show will feature 40 commercial and federal organizations. Stop by booth #104 to visit Delta Risk representatives.

Cyber Job Fair

The Cyber Job Fair (sponsored by ClearedJobs.Net) is a hiring event for cleared and non-cleared cyber security professionals that will take place the first day of the conference. Here’s a list of attending companies.
