Tuesday June 30th, 2015 – Cape Town - Today, VOSS Solutions announced that the company will host a second IT Security Workshop, at its headquarters in Cape Town.

  • Date: Wednesday July 8, 2015
  • Time: 7pm – 9pm
  • Location: Knowledge Park 3, Unit 5 Heron Crescent, Century City, Cape Town

The event, entitled Enumeration for Penetration Testers, is free to attend, and comprises an introduction on enumeration and reconnaissance tools that can be used to find information on targets before conducting a penetration test. The training will also cover how a company can minimize the amount of information exposed on the internet that could be useful to attackers. A fun "capture the flag" contest will follow, which will enable students to test their skills and put their new knowledge into practice.

The IT Security Workshop will once again be delivered by the Cape Town division of OWASP (The Open Web Application Security Project); an affiliation of information security professionals and technology enthusiasts. As lead sponsor of the IT Security Workshop, VOSS will host the event at its Cape Town headquarters. OWASP is driven by a goal to facilitate security workshops, at no cost to attendees. VOSS supports the association in its mission to promote a culture of free access to knowledge and expertise.

VOSS first sponsored the IT Security Workshop in June 2015, attracting close to 30 security enthusiasts to its Cape Town HQ. VOSS returns as lead sponsor for a second time in a bid to support OWASP’s training initiative to promote a thriving, self-sustaining community of technologists that share VOSS’ ethics of access, freedom of information, and improvement to quality of life.

Liam Smit, IT Manager at VOSS, commented; "The IT Security Workshop that we hosted in June was a great success, providing a collaborative and dynamic environment for like-minded techies to learn new skills. I’m delighted that we have the opportunity to offer our facility for a second time."

To register for the free Workshop, attendees will already be involved in technology, and will have an interest in learning the principles of information security. Places are limited, and registration is on a first-come-first-served basis.
