The village will have 6 different stations with numerous exercises where participant can practice their skills and learn new ones. Most stations have exercises that can take you anywhere between 30-40 minutes to complete. We will also give you "homework" where you can complete dozens of other exercises. We will have laptops for you to complete the exercises, but feel free to bring your own.

True Red Team assessments are different from traditional pen testing. They follow some pen testing methodologies, but are more targeted and focused — designed to test the organization’s detection and response capabilities. This station will get you started with the concepts of Red Teamming.
