April, 2016 Chapter Meeting

Our April chapter meeting is on Wednesday, April 6th, 2016 at 5:45PM. Please RSVP if you plan on attending!

Raising Your Awareness On The Importance Of Awareness

Abstract: SIEMS, FIMS, IDS/IPS, Network Forensics, Vulnerability Management, Micro Segmentation, IAM and multi-factor auth. Fundamental technology that is vital to any robust security program….yet despite the amount we are spending on technology we continue to be plagued with ransomware, credential theft and data exfiltration. When we look at how the traditional attack surface has been hardened it’s easy to see why our enemies have shifted to the softest target, the human. The good news is there is hope for a better future! The most effective thing we can do to minimize these attacks is bring a new level of awareness to our organizations.
