RISE regulars know we are fans of the Center for Internet Security’s Critical Security Controls. Renowned cybersecurity expert Randy Marchany joins us in February to share experiences and recommendations on implementation.
Our October meeting will be a joint event with the Roanoke-Blacksburg Technology Council. As this is a special event, please note the special date and time and that registration is required.
We work tirelessly to bring you a variety of InfoSec content every month. We talk about blue team, identity management, SIEM, and even legal issues. But we know….we know it’s the dark arts you fancy. This month we’re teaming up with our friends at the Roanoke-Blacksburg Technology Council to bring you a double benny: deep technical content presented by local talent!
Due to restrictions on public gatherings, this month’s meeting will be virtual. Web conference connection info will be provided via the RISE Email List.
Nearly every organization is going through Wide Area Network (WAN) Edge Transformation and the continued adoption of Cloud Software as a Service (SaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) are a prominent driver of these changes. Business-critical applications and infrastructure are moving to the cloud and legacy WAN architectures no longer meet performance expectations. Business operations require higher performance and availability across distributed enterprises.
We apologize for the inconvenience – due to work-related preparations for the on-going COVID-19 situation we must cancel tonight’s social meet-up.
We spend a lot of time discussing the on-line portion of InfoSec: application vulnerabilities, buffer overflows, log review, and network traffic analysis. But physical security remains an important part of an organization’s plan for dealing with threats. Environments that house particularly sensitive data may need to track or detect wireless devices for inventory tracking and secure area sanitization.
RISE member Aaron McPhall has set up a Slack workspace for discussion of InfoSec related topics. Networking through local groups is a great way to build your career and maybe even solve a problem or two. Check out the New River Valley InfoSec slack at https://nrv-infosec.slack.com/.
The NRV InfoSec Slack channel is an independent resource and not run or moderated by RISE. We are providing this external link to members interested in building their local professional network.
Selecting a Managed Security Services Provider shouldn’t be like speed dating, but rather like finding a life partner. This presentation will help guide you in finding an MSSP that meets your organization’s needs so you can “swipe left” on MSSPs that are all show and no go.
Congratulations to Keith Swagler for his winning submission to the BSides Roanoke logo contest! We liked the simplicity of design, incorporation of the Roanoke Star, and following the general theme of other Security BSides event logos. Keith will enjoy some bragging rights as well as a new Yubikey 5 NFC.
