DSU Faculty to Teach Hacking Workshop in Sioux Falls

DSU faculty members, Dr. Patrick Engebretson and Dr. Josh Pauli, will be conducting the Hands-on Hacking Workshop Oct. 28 and 29 at the Washington Pavilion in Sioux Falls.

The workshop is geared towards area professionals who wish to better protect their own networks and systems.

The classes will stress the fundamental tools and techniques that are applicable to a wide range of systems. Participants with little to no prior security skills will learn how to become competent ethical network and web software penetration testers. The two-day course is broken into 16 modules that leverage industry tools in information gathering, vulnerability discovery, scanning and exploitation. Participants who complete the course will receive 16 CPE credits.

Dakota State University is a national leader in hands-on technical security education and is committed to providing security training through the DSU IT Initiative. Both Dr. Engebretson and Dr. Pauli teach undergraduate and graduate ethical hacking and security courses at DSU. They have also presented at the world's top hacking conferences including Black Hat and DEF CON, along with invited presentations from government agencies such as the CIA, Department of Homeland Security (DHS), National Security Agency (NSA) and FBI.

The Hands-on Hacking workshop and other customized web application and network trainings from DSU are available to any organization or group upon request. Trainings are very mobile and can be presented at the organization or group's home location in half day, full day, or multi-day formats.
