August VEF Participant Wins a Kindle Fire

Posted August 21, 2012    Peter McCalister

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.

BeyondTrust 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 in September. 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!

Our August winner, Ahmad Bassal, was awarded with a new Amazon Kindle Fire for participating in our discussion earlier this month. Here’s a little bit more about Ahmad and what he had to say about BeyondTrust’s VEF:

“BeyondTrust VEFs are very informative because they go into detail on the upcoming IAVAs, what kind of vulnerability it is, and how it was reported and even sometimes by whom. Security has been a hot topic and one can tell by just looking at the increase of IAVA’s over the last couple of years.

I’m a Systems Security Analyst and my primary focus is on IAVAs, audits, patching, and I also use various tools to collect metrics. I enjoy my work and am looking to pursue this field even further.”

Again, congrats to Ahmad and thank you to all for being continued supporters of BeyondTrust and security for all. Don’t forget to join us at our next VEF and you too could possibly take home a new Kindle product! Sign up here.

Posted September 11, 2014    Chris Burd

There are many things in life that get changed regularly:  your car oil, toothbrush and hopefully, your bed sheets.  It’s rare that you give these things much thought – even when you forget to change them.
