Onsite Solutions

We are your total event solution

The Aries Security team has almost two decades of experience managing events with attendee numbers ranging from 10 to over 10,000. Over the years, our team has built every style and format of event imaginable. We specialize in running interactive impactful events in the following formats:

These events are designed to take groups of any skill level and provide exercises and training designed to upgrade their skills or teach them new ones. This event type is perfect for training staff on new and emerging threats, cross departmental training, and overall skill assessment. With our administrative back end, we can provide in-depth reporting for management and leaders and provide CPEs for all participants.

This style of event is great for groups interested in seeing how much they’ve improved over time, or in showing off in friendly competition. We can tailor challenge sets based on your group’s skill level, or provide our DEF CON style approach of throwing our toughest challenges out and seeing how far up the ladder your teams get. This style is how we approach bigger shows like DEF CON and the Code Blue Security Conference in Japan.

The professional touch

We have pinpointed the three main areas where organizations need help the most, and we have a fast and easy system for capturing your requirements and executing your vision: 


We plan the event with you, gathering information about what topics you want covered and which activities you plan on hosting. These discussions may extend to handling location, catering, merchandise and marketing as needed.


Once we have your key items, our staff starts working on content setup, procurement, and site design. We will stay in contact with you during this process to ensure everything meets your standards. 


Now that the event details are finalized, our staff will be on-site to take care of things. We handle all activities, awards, catering and entertainment so you can be in the experience with your team rather than handling hosting duties.
