% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


EC-Council launches the TakeDownCon series – a highly technical information security conference series that promises to be an excellent knowledge acquisition and skills exchange platform.

Jan 6, 2011 – Albuquerque, NM – TakeDownCon will bring together information security researchers and technical experts, both the brightest and darkest, from the corporate and government sectors to academic as well the underground, and make it into one of the world’s premier infosec event where the latest security threats are presented and debated, and vulnerabilities are disclosed and scrutinized.

TakeDownCon will also feature a pre-event training platform offering EC-Council certification training including the world-renowned Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) and Computer Hacking Forensic Investigator (CHFI) programs. In addition, there will also be highly advanced and technical courses offered by EC-Council’s Center of Advanced Security Training (CAST). These programs are designed by industry practitioners and experts, and will allow participants to go through both hands on and real life scenario based training covering domains such as web application security, penetration testing and social engineering.

Jay Bavisi, President of EC-Council said, “There is a huge gap, and we recognize the need for more information security training and education. TakeDownCon will be the ideal platform for knowledge acquisition. Dallas was chosen for its strategic geographical location, and the vast demand for information security training. TakeDownCon, being highly technical, will feature a brand new format, it will be very focused, content driven, and attendees will see no frills, thus making it accessible for the masses.”

This conference will also see the launch of “Nite Locks et all”. It is where physical security vulnerabilities and lock picking skills will be showcased, and a chance for attendees to try their hands on lock picking, under the tutelage of experts in this realm.

The Call for Paper is now open. If you are interested to reveal a zero day exploit, expose a new vulnerability or flag an unknown threat, this is the platform for you to demonstrate your technical proficiency and thought leadership.

TakeDownCon will make its debut in Dallas, TX from May 14 – 19, 2011. More details can be found at http://www.takedowncon.com.
