February VEF Participant Takes Home a Kindle Fire.

Posted February 28, 2012    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 March 14, 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 February winner, Craig Farmer, who was awarded with a new Amazon Kindle Fire for participating in our discussion earlier this month. Congrats to Craig. A bit more about him:

I am a Hewlett Packard employee, contracted to a Federal government agency specifically for IT security services.  I hold a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) credential.  My daily job is exercise IT security; vulnerability detection, prevention, remediation and regulation compliance.

The challenge of information security today, is that it changes as quickly as new technology is delivered.  Keeping ahead of the bad guys is a continual effort that relies heavily on automated tools for both detection and remediation.

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