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.
October 2020 – Defense Against the Dark Arts
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!
April 2020 – Secure SD-WAN
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.
CANCELLED – March 2020 – Social Gaming Night

February 2020 – Introduction to Burp Suite
January 2020 – An InfoSec Journey
December 2019 – Wireless Intrusion Detection
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.
November 2019 – Selecting a Managed Security Services Provider
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.
October 2019 – Threat Intel 101
September 2019 – Capture the Flag Demonstration
Note: This cooperative event will start at 6:30pm!
Capture the Flag challenges offer the opportunity to improve your InfoSec skills whether you are a seasoned penetration tester or just starting your journey. An InfoSec novice may not sweep the competition but they will certainly improve their knowledge. Trying new things can be hard especially in a profession that contains talent that, at times, seems untouchable. Let’s calm those fears with a CtF demonstration and review.
