July VEF Participant Wins a Kindle Fire

Posted July 15, 2013    Qui Cao

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 August. 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 July winner, Jeffrey Johnston, was awarded with a new Amazon Kindle Fire for participating in our discussion earlier this month. Here’s a little bit more about Jeffrey:

“I am Jeffrey Johnston, and I work for Yardstick Technologies in Edmonton Alberta Canada.  I am currently the designated NOC Specialist / Engineer for both our own I.T. Services and our managed clients.  My job is to identify, and avoid potential problems before they happen and then prevent them; and I measure my success based on uptime and continuity of network services.

In my spare time, I enjoy engineering in-house alternatives to expensive commercial services which we offer, to either add new functionality or reduce overhead and complexity for either us or our customers.

This was my first time attending the VEF webinar, and I immediately saw the value of the information being provided to me, and was able to quickly put the knowledge I obtained to good use.  The webinar was thorough but concise and to the point.  It started on time and ended on schedule, which is sadly uncommon in today’s world.  I rate it 10/10 in terms of content, professionalism, and value.”

Again, congrats to Jeffrey 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.
