September NolaSec Meeting

posted Sep 17, 2012, 10:08 AM by Nolasec Group   [ updated Sep 17, 2012, 10:15 AM ]
Please join us for the third meeting of the newly revamped NolaSec (Nola Security). For those unfamiliar with our group, we are composed of researchers, professionals, students, and hobbyists in the computer security and digital forensics space. The purpose of group is to bring members of all IT-related fields together for a monthly meeting where interesting topics in information security can be presented and members can then network in an informal environment.

With the revamped Nolasec, we are no longer using our old format with one speaker per-meeting, and will now be using the "fire talks" format. This will include having three speakers present for five to tens minutes each. We will then all hang out in the back room and attendees will get to ask questions of the speakers as well as get to meet other attendees. The speakers are already set for the third meeting, and we believe we have attracted a wide range of technical talks from some of the area's top information security experts. Our group grows greatly based on word of mouth so feel free to invite anyone who you think may enjoy the group. We also accept new speakers every month, so have your ideas ready for October! Please read below for complete information about the meeting.

Thursday September 27th  6:00-8:00PM

The Bridge Lounge, 1201 Magazine St. New Orleans, LA
Note: We meet in the back room, not in the general bar area
