MOREnet Security Update

Tuesday, November 22, 2011

MOREnet has long been dedicated to offering top-notch security event response, consulting and training to its member communities. Over the years, many members have even described our security services as above and beyond their expectations. While our Security team has experienced some changes and challenges over the last few months, please know that security support for our members is still going strong. Essential security services are being covered by MOREnet experts and planning for our spring Security Symposium is in full swing.
 
I am pleased to announce that Patti Dudenhoeffer is returning to the Security team on November 28th. Some of you may remember Patti from a few years back. She has nine years of previous experience working with MOREnet, including working on and supporting local area networks, supporting our security services and providing security training. She will be a great asset to our team.
 
As a method to further improve service to our members MOREnet will be formalizing its approach to cross technology and platform information sharing through an internal security working group. Although MOREnet staff have always worked closely together our intent is to enhance the interface opportunities between the experts from all technical areas to look around corners and look forward to next generation.
 
MOREnet is in full planning mode for the 2012 Security Symposium to be held March 21 at the Downtown Marriott in Kansas City, Mo. We are pleased to announce, our keynote for the symposium is Justin Searle, Managing Partner of UtiliSec, SANS instructor and DefCon speaker. To read more about Justin and to get a sneak peek of his presentation at DefCon visit www.more.net/content/security-symposium. We are also receiving several information-packed presentations on DDoS attacks, Passive Network Analysis and its effectiveness, securing mobile devices, remote mobile wiping and more!
 
Presentation spots are filling quickly, so hurry and submit your presentation proposals before the window closes Dec. 2. Don’t forget one presenter per accepted presentation receives a free Security Symposium conference registration!
