As security has become a larger concern, my intent was only to see if
anyone was interested in a presentation on security practices that could
help system administrators and developers follow better security practices
that would be able to prevent a large majority of the attacks. And the
presentation wouldn't be used on any networks that could jeopardize the
security of any networks, more as a demo with such things as metasploitable
being ran on a virtualbox local-only network.
