November 2021 – Left of Boom

After a great B-Sides event last month RISE is coming at ya with a great presentation for November.  Rob Garbee will be presenting “Left of Boom”.  Loosely based on the book Left of Bang by Douglas Laux we will be unpacking simple concepts that can assist in understanding what a network defender can know ahead of time to both predict and prevent “Boom” events.  Furthermore, we will look at what happens after the “Boom” and what concepts and tools can be used to minimize damage and recover.  Looking forward to seeing you all there.

Meeting location will be held at R&K Solutions in Roanoke VA.

November 11th @ 5:30 PM
