GridSecCon 2017 Training Tracks

All training sessions run simultaneously on Tuesday, October 17, and run either all-day (starting at 8 a.m.) or half-day (starting at 8 a.m. or 1 p.m.).  A full conference registration must be purchased to attend a training session.  There is no extra charge to attend the training sessions. 

Since courses overlap (see the graphic below), during registration, please choose either:

  • One or two half-day classes (some combination of 2A, 2B, 3A, 3B, 4A, 4B, 5A or 5B).  Each of these training tracks are independent of each other and cover different material.

GridEx NetWars is a suite of hands-on, interactive learning scenarios that enable Operational Technology (OT) security professionals to develop and master the real-world, in-depth skills they need to defend real-time systems. It is designed as a challenge competition and is split into separate levels so that advanced players may quickly move through earlier levels based on their expertise.  The GridEx Netwars experience has been themed for the electric sector and the scenario has been coordinated to align with the E-ISAC GridEx IV event occurring later in the year, however participation in the full GridEx IV is not required in order to participate in GridEx NetWars event.
