CyberSecurity Workshops

code1Pentesting Workshops Scheduled: A few seats still available

Fountainhead College of Technology welcomes cybersecurity expert Joe McCray to campus April 10 and 11 to teach two hands-on, all-day workshops on penetration testing. Students, InfraGard members and attendees of last October’s East Tennessee Cyber Security Summit will be learning about pentesting, which is a method of evaluating the security of a computer system or network by simulating an attack from malicious outsiders or, in some cases, insiders with malicious intentions.

A few seats are still available for the April 11 workshop. The registration fee is $50, payable to "East Tennessee Cyber Security Summit." For more information, contact

This workshop will cover some of the newer aspects of penetration testing such as Open Source Intelligence Gathering with Maltego and other Open Source tools. Basic Network Scanning, Enumeration, Exploitation (remote and client-side), and Post-Exploitation relying heavily on the features included in the Metasploit Framework will also be covered. Basic Web Application penetration testing will be covered as well with focus on practical exploitation of SQL injection, and cross-site scripting (XSS).

Joe McCray is the founder & CEO of Strategic Security, LLC, an IT Security consulting firm that provides in-depth technical security assessments of networks, web applications and regulatory compliance gap analysis.
