The window for registering to purchase SANS NetWars Continuous Play at a highly discounted aggregate-buy price closes on December 15. Details are at: http://www.ren-isac.net/programs/nw2012/ NetWars CP is a collection (five levels) of computer and network security challenges designed to represent real-world security issues, flaws and resolutions. Challenges include analyzing and exploiting security flaws, forensics, vulnerability assessment, penetration tests, and attack/defense. Each player follows an independent path based on individual problem solving skills, technical skills, aptitude, and creativity. NetWars provides hands-on experiences that develop the player's understanding of computer and network vulnerabilities, attacks and defenses. Players have four months to complete the five levels of the program. REN-ISAC has teamed up with SANS to make the program available at a special discounted price of $700 per person, available to staff, faculty, and undergraduate students at higher education institutions, K-12 teachers and students, and state and local government employees. The discounted price is a substantial saving over the $1999 list. If we get enough participation in the CP aggregate buy, we'll have a NetWars tournament in conjunction with the EDUCAUSE Security Professionals Conference May 15-17. CPE and SANS CMU credits (1 CPE = 1 CMU) are provided for NetWars participation. Upon completing Level 3, 12 credits are given. Level 4 is currently under evaluation, but on the order of 16 credits are expected for Level 4 itself. Please pass this message around far and wide in your local communities!

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 As someone who is currently playing the game, I wanted to take moment to recommend it, I have been having a great time playing and am learning from it at the same time. Most of the tools I am using were things I already knew existed, but had never had a chance to use in a real world scenario, but there have been new things I have learned as well. Perhaps the best part has been that it has reminded me of how info-sec can be fun.
