PWAPT Augusta



IMPORTANT: BSidesAugusta event tickets *must* be purchased separately. Training tickets are not valid for entry into the conference. Event tickets can be purchased at the BSidesAugusta event page.


Headed to Augusta, GA for BSidesAugusta? If not, you should be! With Fort Gordon, home of NSA South and the Army Cyber branch, only a few miles away, Augusta is a fast growing Information Security community and host to one of the largest BSides events in the world. While the conference has historically been a huge success, it's done so without offering training opportunities. Not anymore! This year BSidesAugusta is partnering with Practical Security Services to bring you a 3-day presentation of Practical Web Application Penetration Testing (PWAPT) with Tim "lanmaster53" Tomes. For specific details regarding course materials and prerequisites, see the PWAPT training page.

Meals will not be provided, but there is a variety of food options in the immediate vicinity of the training facility and nearby accommodations. An hour will be provided for lunch, which should be plenty of time to grab a bite at one of the many nearby restaurants.
