Conference and Seminar Reminder

Busy, busy, busy. A lot going on right now in the cyber security realm. The Microsoft shortcut link Zero day has really caused a stir. Just wanted to remind everyone that the Virtual FOSE conference kicks off today, in about an hour actually. Topics include cybersecurity, cloud computing, Windows Azure and Sharepoint 2010 and product demos. It is free and online. It should be very good, we will definitely check that out.

Also, do not forget about Arcsight’s “Detecting and Stopping Modern Botnets” seminar at 1PM EST today. We will be there too, somehow, lol.

Just to give you a heads up, we have several reviews for you coming soon, some interesting info on IPv6, a possible addition of training videos, new tutorials, and a complete map of the 2012 end of the world. Okay, just kidding on that last part, but we have a flood of information we are going through right now. And I want to make sure I pass along the best to you.

Take care, talk to you soon!
