March 2022 – What’s Lurking On Your Network

Yes, it’s true we will be meeting this month!  After a great break from the norm at Blade gaming, we are ready to move ahead with our next meeting on March 10th at 5:30pm at ECPI in Roanoke, VA.  If you can’t make it in person that’s fine, we are streaming this event via our Zoom.  Our next meeting will feature special guest Jay McClung.  Jay will be speaking to us about how cyber-crime organizations and state sponsored actors exploit physical layer 1 “blind spots” to gain access to an organization’s most valuable assets.   See below for more info.

With the most recent events in the news, it is safe to say that state sponsored cyber attacks will be on the rise.  Protecting our assets on all levels is more important than ever and often layer 1 protections often gets overlooked in favor of the flashier exploits.  Jay McClung wants to make sure that you don’t make that mistake.  On Thursday Jay will explain how layer 1 blind spots provide opportunities for malicious actors to take advantage of our networks using malware injection, ransomware and data leakage via rogue devices.

Don’t miss the opportunity to hear from an industry expert while taking the opportunity to share some of your personal experiences with others in the IT security community.

As usual this will be free event, welcome to all!  Hope to see you there.
