Amazon Kindle Winner Announced. Join our January VEF and Win!

Posted December 30, 2011    Sarah Lieber

As you all know, every month we host our Vulnerability Expert Forum (VEF) webinar. This is a time where our experts share valuable insight regarding new vulnerabilities that are discovered and the actions that need to be taken as a result. It’s a quick way to get up to speed on current potential risks to your organization and a way to explore the impact that high-risk vulnerabilities and exploits have on network environments and infrastructures. eEye is committed to helping security administrators reduce the workload they face by making this information easily accessible and by clearly presenting all required information to our audience. 

If you haven’t attended a VEF before, I encourage you to sign up and join our next one on January 11, 2012. Not only will you receive a complete analysis of recently announced critical vulnerabilities from Microsoft and other software vendors but you could potentially win a Kindle product from us!

Just ask our December winner, Chip Greene, who was awarded with a new Amazon Kindle and $25 Amazon giftcard for participating in our discussion earlier this month. Congrats to Chip! Here’s what he had to say…

“It is important to keep up-to-date on vulnerabilities and their mitigation efforts to provide a solid security foundation for any organization. The eEye Vulnerability Expert Forums are a great way to get a brief of the issues and listen to how the experts respond. Learning from the professionals at eEye helps make my security posture even stronger.” – Chip Greene, Senior Information Security Analyst

Chip has recently been appointed as a Senior Information Security Analyst with a large Health Systems campus focusing on the security and disaster recovery efforts.  Prior to this appointment, Chip was the Senior Network Specialist at the University of Richmond with responsibilities of LAN/WAN and Wireless management, System Administration, Security  and DR.  He has 25 years of IT experience and has recently obtained his Master’s Degree in Disaster Science from the University of Richmond.

Again, congrats to Chip and thank you to all for being continued supporters of eEye and security for all.

Happy New Year!
