Winner! Winner! Black Hat Dinner!

We’re pleased to announce we have a winner for our “Win a Trip to Black Hat” contest. Thank you to the several hundred who entered. Over 200 of you passed the test!

Curious to see how you may have fared on the quiz? Check out the answer thread in our LogRhythm Community.

So how did we choose the winner? Rob McGovern, NetMon senior technical product manager, pulled the winner out of a big bowl full of names. (A highly technical process, we assure you.)

Without further ado, we are excited to announce that Alonzo Ramos from Temecula, California is our lucky winner!

Want another shot to win big (up to $18,000 USD in cash)?

Our Rule Your Network Challenge has begun! But be warned: For this contest, you need to do more than answer 3 out of 5 questions correctly. You need to prove your NetMon know-how.

Unleash your network security skills in this hackathon-style change. Write a DPA rule, make a dashboard, or both! Then enter the contest in one of three categories:

  1. Best Novel Threat Detection: Can you find the next EternalBlue? Do you know how to identify and isolate insecure IoT devices?
  2. Best Hunting Dashboard or Use Case: Can you make a dashboard or a DPA rule to highlight beaconing traffic? What about an unusual ICMP or DNS? Or fingerprint systems using insecure protocols?
  3. Best IT Operations Use Case: Can you identify and isolate a web server using just network traffic? Or can you identify systems with high network latency?

We’re betting our money that you have what it takes! Enter the contest on DevPost for the chance to win $5,000 for first prize in each category. The second prize in each category will take home $1,000.
