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 blog.radware.com/security/ 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."

Each week, Herberger will post announcements, hints and commentary about the Challenge on the Radware Security Expert blog. Also, an official leader board on the Challenge's homepage will keep track of the top scoring players.

Besides being fun, the Challenge is designed to give individual participants a benchmark of their application and network security expertise so they can identify for themselves their cyber security strengths and weaknesses. If an entire IT staff takes the Challenge, results also can be a valuable indicator for managers of areas to plan for additional training, continuing education, or professional certification.

How Contestants Play
Participants have 90 seconds to answer each question. A minimum of nine correct answers is required to pass the round, and players who pass receive an email with their digital colored belt for that level along with a special code to advance to the next round. Players will get several chances to retake the test if needed.

Once a player passes all five rounds, he or she will achieve Black Belt status and qualify to become the Attack Mitigation Black Belt Challenge Champion. The Champion will be selected from the Black Belt-level players who finished all of the rounds in the shortest amount of time.
