Dynetics to Host TakeDownCon Rocket City in July for the Fourth Consecutive Year

Friday April 22, 2016

The EC-Council Foundation's TakeDownCon Rocket City IT security conference will return to Dynetics this summer for a fourth consecutive year. Pre-conference training will be July 14-17, and the two-day conference will be July 18-19. Both the conference and the training will take place in the Dynetics Solutions Complex, 1004 Explorer Blvd., in Huntsville's Cummings Research Park.

TakeDownCon Rocket City is a highly technical forum that focuses on the latest vulnerabilities, the most potent exploits and current security threats facing enterprise owners and IT professionals. The best and the brightest in the cybersecurity field will share their expertise, giving attendees an opportunity to learn about the industry's most current and important issues. 

TakeDownCon brings together information security researchers and technical experts from corporate to underground industries for this unique "ethical hacking" conference. In two days, they will present and debate the latest security threats, disclose current vulnerabilities and share information crucial to the technical profession.

Training attendees will receive free admission to the conference as well as official courseware (for EC-Council and CAST training), a complimentary exam voucher (for EC-Council certification training) and a certificate of attendance, along with lunch and coffee breaks throughout the training.

Discounts for training are available to EC-Council members, government employees and college students and professors.

Each year, TakeDownCon draws a large number of participants from all over and interest from the community. 

"We're pleased that the EC-Council has decided to bring this world-class conference and convenient, cost-effective training opportunity to Huntsville again this year," said Dynetics President Greg Lester. "Because cybersecurity is one of our primary business areas, we understand the positive impact this type of training, networking and information-sharing can have on our community."
