Technology Seminar Series

Advanced Skill Development – Discuss Relevant Topics – Network With Peers

The Technology Seminar Series seeks to engage the community and educate IT professionals on a variety of topics. We understand that training is expensive and hope to provide a low cost option as an alternative. In the end, we’re all in this together and any small part helps!


The Essential Defender

April 19th & 20th

Trainers: Purdue University

Join the Purdue cyberTap team to do some hands-on learning in their cyber range! The Purdue Team will guide us through three different scenarios hand-picked to work well for participants who are just getting in to cybersecurity as the skills and knowledge transfer into almost every investigation but also for the participants who have experience in the field as they get to see attacks taking place without their own network being pwned. This class will provide a smooth transition from theory to practice while preparing you for your own incidents or more advanced range training in the future.

Training Opportunities

NineStar’s Technology Seminar Series is going to be offering training opportunities to various certifications throughout the year in addition to the seminar series you’ve been used to.
