Defend The Flag: Need

There are too many events and conferences focused on hacking and exploitation but very few that focus on defense, Datacenter security and next generation security operation centres (SOC). The aim of Defend the Flag series is to expose sectoral organizations to sector-specific threats, attack vectors, tools, process and techniques required to be in place to protect these CII assets in operation both within Government, public and private corporate entities across the country.
