Evoke Research and Consulting
671 North Glebe Rd, Ste 1600
Arlington, VA, 22203

Agenda and Cost:

Registration is complimentary.

Networking 11:30 - 12:00.

By the end of this talk, everyone in the room will be a CyberSecurity warrior. Sean will explain how to think like an attacker about your next project. From incorporating security intelligently into Agile methodologies, thinking about security in a DevOps world, secret hacks, and getting into the mindset of a researcher in a bug bounty program, you will be able to envision where your project can go wrong and how to get rid of the badness. Let's manage some risk!

We will use real-life scenarios to drive the conversation, and we’ll make sure to have fun along the way (including calling out the one phrase in this abstract security people never want you to say).

Special Instructions: 

Bring your own lunch.

Evoke is located at 671 N Glebe Rd, Suite #1600, Arlington, VA, in the Ballston Mall. The Mall and the garage are currently under construction. Upon your arrival, park in the Ballston Mall Public Parking Garage at the corner of N. Glebe and N. Carlin Springs. Take the elevators down to the G1. There, you will walk out of the elevator and see two doors to your right; go through them into a short hallway. Follow the signs to the new pedestrian pathway that leads you towards Glebe Rd. Turn right on the corner of Glebe Road and go straight and you will see a sign for The Ballston Office Tower. Follow the sign to 671 N. Glebe Road. When in the building, the Security Guard on the left will badge you up to the 16th floor, Suite 1600. If you have questions call 571-298-4440.

The Metro is the most convenient mode of transportation to Evoke Research and Consulting, LLC. We are two blocks from the Ballston Metro stop, which is on both the Orange and Silver lines. There is a covered walkway that runs from the Ballston Metro station to the Ballston Common Mall. Exit the metro station via the escalator and walk into the covered walkway. Continue towards the Ballston Mall Complex (currently under construction) via the covered pathway. The walkway will lead you to the front of the building on N.Glebe Road and you will find the Security Desk for Ballston Tower on your left.

About the Ballston Local Community

PMIWDC is excited to announce a new Local Community: the Ballston Local Community hosted by Evoke Research and Consulting. The LC is a forum for learning, discussion and knowledge exchange. The LC sessions feature presentations by guest speakers who are PMI-recognized thought leaders, educators and Subject Matter Experts. The sessions are free and PMP attendees earn one PDU. Evoke is a management consulting firm that supports clients across the Federal government.

Please note: upon entering the Ballston Office Tower, you will be required to sign in three separate times. First with the Ballston Tower security desk where they may ask for your identification. Second with Evoke’s front desk personnel. Then one final time for PMI-WDC when you enter Evoke’s main conference room to receive PDU credits. We understand this can be a lengthy process, but it is per Ballston Office Tower and Evoke’s policies
