March VEF Participant Wins a Kindle Fire

Post by Qui Cao March 19, 2013

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

“I love attending the VEFs every month. Working at a small company, in the financial industry, it can be hard to keep up on everything network/storage/server plus security. Trying to tackle the whole thing as one guy is difficult at times. The guys who present the VEFs do a great job summarizing all the security news and updates in a relatively small amount of time. Quick bio raised most of my life in Wyoming. Currently living in Idaho. Married with one kid and another on the way. Graduated with a BS in Computer Information Technology with an emphasis in networking and administration. Hobbies include walking, paintballing and games (of all kinds).”

Again, congrats to Mike 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.
