FIRST is holding a one-day Technical Colloquium in Herndon, VA on Tue 2 Nov 2010, organized by Jeffrey Palatt from IBM. The event is free and open to FIRST members and their guests, but seating is limited. The program features several good speakers but the interaction among the attendees is often what I like best! As you might expect the content involves detection and response to security incidents.
If you are not a FIRST member but would like to see if I can sponsor you, email taosecurity at gmail dot com by Tuesday evening. Please use "FIRST TC" as the subject of the email. I will do what I can to accommodate requests, but FIRST makes the final decision concerning attendance for non-FIRST members.
