Tribe of Companies

John Strand has created a network of companies in the InfoSec industry dedicated to providing affordable, outstanding products and services that cover all of your Information Security needs from Pentesting to Training.

Each company helps to support the InfoSec community in their own way; offering free educational content, open-source tools, or even donating to various projects.

Active Countermeasures is a group of like-minded geeks that believe in giving back to the security community. We do this through free training, thought leadership, and both open source and affordable commercial tools.

As a community, we have tools and techniques to help protect our networks (firewalls, AV, log review, etc.). We also have tools and processes to recover when a system is compromised (incident handling and forensics). What’s been missing is the bridge between the two; the ability to quickly identify that our protections have failed and recovery needs to be implemented. There are very few tools in this space and no open standards or attestation requirements.

How do you validate that your network is free of intruders? This is the problem Active Countermeasures is focused on solving.

Antisyphon Infosec Training is here to disrupt the traditional training industry by providing high-quality and cutting-edge education to everyone, regardless of their financial position. We offer students the opportunity to learn skills, practice what is taught and engage with their community, in a fun and inclusive way.

Antisyphon courses are tailored to beginners and seasoned professionals alike. Our mission is to provide approachable, accessible, and affordable public and private training for the Informational Security community.

More than just a conference, Wild West Hackin’ Fest (WWHF) is committed to offering high-quality information security education to beginners and seasoned professionals alike. With conferences, reasonably priced training, hands-on labs, and workshops, WWHF lowers the barrier to entry for those seeking to enter into the world of information security. WWHF also offers a venue for those already established in the industry to share ideas, give back, and continue learning.

WWHF puts teachers who love teaching into conversation with students who love learning through conferences, training, Roundup events, and Hackin’ Casts.
