We’ve had a number of people pre-register (http://securabit.com/ctf/), which is fantastic, and you can pre-register all the way up to the day before CTF. The only requirements are that you are an RVAsec attendee and you bring your own laptop. You can even show up to the CTF and participate without pre-registration, space permitting.
And, of course, there are prizes!
1st Place – Nexus 7 PwnPad
2nd Place – Raspberry Pi
3rd Place – 1 BSides Las Vegas ticket
4th Place – 1 BSides Las Vegas ticket
5th Place – The highest of fives
Rapid7 is hosting the RVAsec after party on Friday, May 31 at the Tobacco Company! The event takes place right after the conference ends–so just head from VCU down to Shockoe Slip for some cocktails and appetizers!
The reserved RVAsec block of rooms at the Crowne Plaza is almost full! If you need a room for the conference please book as soon as possible.
The rate is $112/night (which includes parking)– when you call ask to speak with “in-house reservations” and mention the block “RVAsec” to get the special rate. Unfortunately, you will need to call the hotel to get the rate and cannot get the rate online.
We are pleased to announce that RVAsec 2013 is now sold out and we look forward to a great event! In the coming days we will provide some additional information about the conference to all that have registered.
There are a few spots remaining for training classes and registration will remain open until Midnight Eastern Timezone.
Just in case you still haven’t bought a ticket for RVAsec a day before registration ends, here’s a bit more to sweeten the pot: Jericho of attrition.org (@attritionorg) has agreed to present again! We’re not sure what he’ll come up with on short notice, but we’ve demanded it end with a standing ovation.
In case you missed his talk from last year, here’s the video:
(note: no squirrels were harmed in the bribing of jericho)
We are pleased to announce that we will be raffling off a Pwn Plug Elite at RVAsec! For those that attended last year, you most likely are aware of what the Pwn Plug is since Dave and the Pwnie Express team provided us a few to raffle off. But this year they have upped the stakes big time and provided the Pwn Plug Elite which is valued at $995.
