Meeting Notes – Security and Suds

We had to divert since the SANS Holiday Hack ‘KringleCon’ wasn’t available in time for the RISE meeting. But everyone had a great time at the Blue 5 restaurant! Suds were consumed (the coffee stout was really good!) and security discussed. Topics ranged from OSCP, penetration testing, lessons learned, and on-the-job stories. Everyone enjoyed the fellowship and interesting war stories. Pro tip: Don’t click random authenticator app ‘approve login’ requests when you’re not actually logging in. đŸ˜‰

If you haven’t already seen it, the Holiday Hack is active! This has always been a great way to pick up some skills and have fun in the process. If you have some free time on vacation this week be sure to log in and check it out.

Thank you for making this another great year for RISE. This marks our third year bringing together InfoSec professionals and enthusiasts in the Roanoke valley and surrounding areas. We hope you have benefitted from the presentations and fellowship, and look forward to more in 2019. Join us, bring your friends and colleagues, and let’s make 2019 an even better year for InfoSec jobs in the Roanoke region! Hope you have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

And as always, if you would like to present at an upcoming RISE meeting send us a note at
