MISSION: Black Hat USA

We're excited to announce the launch of the latest edition of our globe-trotting MISSIONS.

From Dubai, we head westward to yet another desert - the Mojave - wherein lies the fabled City of Sin. That's right, we're bringing one of you to Las Vegas, Nevada for the ultimate hacker experience!

Welcome to MISSION: Black Hat USA!

Set in the luxurious Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in the Las Vegas Strip, the information security event of the year - Black Hat USA 2017 - brings the world's leading infosec experts together under one roof to provide the latest in security research, development and trends. Now on its 20th year, attendees can only expect BH USA to put on its biggest show yet. And, as an event sponsor, we want one of you to witness it with us!

 

MISSION Briefing

Your MISSION, should you choose to accept it: join eLearnSecurity in Las Vegas for Black Hat USA on July 25-27, 2017. Joining is so straightforward that there's literally only one step:

  1. Begin your IT security training by enrolling in any of the eLearnSecurity courses between May 1st and June 30th 2017.

Every US$250 spent on enrollment fees qualifies you to one (1) entry into the draw. One extremely lucky student will then be announced as the winner on July 1st 2017.

Even a single entry can win you the grand prize. But of course - in true Vegas style - the more entries, the better your odds of hitting the jackpot!

 

What happens in Vegas...

The MISSION winner gets treated to the Black Hat USA 2017 experience. We'll fly you out to Fabulous Las Vegas, where you'll have hotel accommodation for 3 days and 2 nights. We'll provide you with a full Briefings pass to BH USA 2017 to attend the two-day main conference on July 26-27. The ticket will also give you access to the arsenal, sponsored workshops and sessions, as well as the business hall where you'll find the eLearnSecurity booth.

Sound good? Well, you'll also get to meet with eLS CEO Armando Romeo and our US team for dinner before flying back home.

 

Roll the dice!

Go all-in on your security training with eLearnSecurity. You might just get lucky and end up in Vegas with Black Hat's security giants this July!

In May 2017, we launched the third edition of our MISSIONS. With the stakes so high, and with one of the biggest security events calling, enrollments (and thus, entries) came pouring in from the very first week. Now, two months and hundreds of entries later, the time has come to find out who will be headed to the Sin City for the ultimate infosec experience!

Who hit the jackpot?

So, now that we’ve stirred up enough excitement, it’s time for the big reveal. The person heading to Vegas with us is none other than Zolton Williams @zolton.williams from Miami, Florida!

Zolton has been active in the security field for close to a decade, and is currently working as a Security Operations Engineer at Amadeus IT Group.

Congratulations, Zolton! Make sure to rub off some of that luck on us, cause we’ll be joining you in Vegas soon! And, to all of our students who participated – we’d like to extend a great big thank you to all of you!

Hey @Marek! Yes, that's true - only enrollments during the promo period (May 1-June 30) gets an entry into the draw. Is ARES the only remaining course you're not enrolled in? :lol:

I am enrolled in every course and have earned the eCPPT Gold, eWPT, eCRE, and eNDP. How can I participate?

Hey @evand! Any $250 spent on courses, course upgrades, lab extensions, exam vouchers, WAS360, or a combination of those would still qualify for an entry into the MISSION BHUSA draw.

Knowing my luck, I'd probably still lose even if I invest $99999 in this undertaking :lol:

@hftc1 Well, with all the new skills you could barely call that a loss I guess ;)

The BH 2017 trip would be more like a nice add-on then...

Hi to all, 

i am studying 8 months PTPv4, so my thoughts are to finish first and take the eCCPT Gold and then maybe to buy new course. 

Of course BH 2017 is something extraordinary for me, but money is the major problem buying right now another course :(

Question, 60 Hours lab renewal costs 249$ :wacko:, will there be an exception for people that only purchase the lab extension?

Hi @wd40! Yes, we've also taken that into consideration. ;) You'll get 1 entry into the MISSION: Black Hat USA draw with your lab hours extension. :)
