Stocks in this article: RDWR

MAHWAH, New Jersey, June 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Do you know the most common infrastructure device to fail during an attack on a business' availability?

How would you respond if you experienced an Application Layer 7 security attack?

Are you familiar with legitimate attack vectors for volumetric attacks?

If you can answer these questions you may not only demonstrate an in-depth knowledge of cyber attack mitigation, but also be ready to start a five-week journey to become a network security sensei by taking the Attack Mitigation Black Belt Challenge announced today by Radware (NASDAQ: RDWR), a leading provider of application delivery and application security solutions for virtual and cloud data centers.

The contest begins today on Radware's Security Expert blog at with the first of five weekly assessments comprised of 10 cyber security-related questions. The contest concludes July 23. Participants begin at the novice or White Belt round, and advance to expert levels by correctly answering each week's increasingly difficult questions. The progressive belt levels are: White, Yellow, Green, Red, and Black.  

The Challenge Black Belt Champion will be announced at Radware's booth (#624) at the Black Hat USA 2012 conference in Las Vegas on July 25.  The winner will receive a package that includes $1,495 towards early conference registration to Black Hat 2013, plus $2,000 towards conference training and $1,500 cash allowance towards travel and accommodation.

More Than a Game

Developed and administered by Radware's vice president of Security Solutions, Carl Herberger, the Attack Mitigation Black Belt Challenge tests IT professionals' proficiency in security topics, including constantly evolving risks, attack techniques and commonly used security and control solutions.  As sources for the questions, Herberger drew from his years of experience as one of the nation's leading authorities on application and network security, as well as from research on the state of global cyber security published by Radware's Emergency Response Team.  

"Knowledge is the foundation to any company's attack mitigation strategy for defending enterprise networks and applications," said Herberger. "The Attack Mitigation Black Belt Challenge is specifically designed to provide IT professionals with an accurate, real-time assessment of their expertise in the key areas that can help improve their security approach. We wish everyone the best of luck and look forward to awarding a black belt as the grand prize at this year's Black Hat Conference."
