I am excited for the upcoming Match Meeting. First, we have a REALLY awesome speaker.
SPEAKER: Many have been requesting a talk on application security so what did I do? I went out and got the best person I know on the topic, Jerry Hoff from WhiteHat Security. If you haven’t seen Jerry Speak before, I highly recommend making time during your busy day to do so. I always learn so much and his talks are both entertaining but he walks you through concepts by example – and you can ask him anything.
ELECTIONS: We will also be conducting board elections. Last month we took nominations an there is still time to write in a candidate. This is going to be really good for the community since we have a great deal to get done this time of year as we ramp up for Symposium planning and its always good to bring new energy to the team.
SYMPOSIUM: The team is working hard to make the 30th annual our best yet. We have stepped up how we resource the event so we can focus more on quality by implementing many of the suggestions that the community has given us (thank you). On the speaker front, I started a couple of months ago to try and secure some of the best and most relevant speakers I could, early. I think we will be ready to make a big announcement and share some details in the upcoming meeting. It will be at the Hilton once again, and I think they may have done a renovation so it may look all new when we get back over there.
