July 2022 – OSINT Side Channels

I know July has likely been a busy month for many of you, but you might want to carve out some time for our next meeting.  This will be an interesting topic that intrigues of most all of us.   On July 14th Ben Eldritch will be giving us his talk on OSINT Side Channels.  We will be meeting at Twisted Track in downtown Roanoke at 5:30pm.  See below for more information.  Also, if you missed the last book exchange feel free to bring some books that you want to trade or donate.   

Of course, we understand that not everyone can make it in person, we will attempt to provide a zoom link in a follow up email closer to the meeting date.

Hope to see ya there in person or virtually.
