We are almost a week away from the start of the ISSessionsCTF2022 workshops delivered by KPMG, Mandiant, Lares Consulting and Bell which will be hosted in the ISSessionCTF2022 Discord channel (https://discord.gg/SAWfZhyC).
We are excited to announce the workshop schedule is officially out! You will see a list of the workshops in the events channel at the top of both servers and boy are they . The best part is that you do not need to be registered for the CTF to join (…but you probably should)!
In the ISSessionsCTF sever each sponsor has their dedicated section where they have posted workshop instructions. If you plan on attending a particular workshop, your next step would be to check the “workshop-info” channel for the respective sponsor. There you will find out more workshop details, any special instructions and prerequisites.
As a friendly reminder, if you have not registered for the CTF, you can still do so on:

This Thursday Friday 10th 2022, we have a really cool meeting with a segment on “How to CTF” and stories on breaches with Dan Michaluk.
7:00 – Kick-Off
7:05 – News Round-Up
7:30 – How To: CTF
8:00 – Break
8:05 – Stories from a Breach Coach
Dan Michaluk is a lawyer who supports organizations on a range of cybersecurity matters. His work includes governance, risk and compliance engagements, incident response (or “breach coaching) and litigation that involves both defending organizations and litigating to recover stolen data.
Stories from a Breach Coach
Dan will give a first hand account of the real workings of incident response from the perspective of a lawyer and breach coach who is engaged regularly to respond to ransomware incidents, business e-mail compromises and other security and privacy problems. We’ll go from T=0, through to threat actor dealings, recovery and data analysis challenges and on to closing the file and moving on.
We hope to see you all there!
