December 2015 Public meeting - In The Wake Of Ashley Madison

Our next ISSA meeting will be Thursday, December 3 and will feature Jim Salter!  This free meeting is open to the public, so please share with your friends and security colleagues!

38 million accounts and 9.7 million credit card transactions from the notorious adultery site leaked this year. How does this affect you? Probably more than you think, whether you were in AM's databases or not. What can we learn from the data exposed in the breach, and what does it tell us about the security posture of not only website owners, but internet users themselves?

Jim Salter (@jrssnet) is an author, mercenary sysadmin, and father of three—not necessarily in that order. He got his first real taste of open source running Apache on his very own dedicated FreeBSD 3.1 server back in 1999, and he's been a fierce advocate of FOSS ever since. He's the author of the Sanoid hyperconverged infrastructure project (http://sanoid.net/). And he's written articles for Ars Technica on everything from next-gen filesystems to NAS distributions.

November 2015 Public meeting - The Fog of More with Tony Sager

Our next ISSA meeting will be Thursday, November 5 and will feature Tony Sager!  This free meeting is open to the public, so please share with your friends and security colleagues!

Tony Sager is a Senior VP and Chief Evangelist for the Center for Internet Security. He leads the development of the Critical Security Controls, a worldwide consensus project to find and support technical best practices in cybersecurity. His “volunteer army” cuts across all segments of the industry to identify practices that will stop the vast majority of attacks seen today, and then leads projects that will validate, measure, scale, and share these practices for widespread adoption. Tony also serves as the Director of the SANS Innovation Center, a subsidiary of The SANS Institute.

Tony retired from the National Security Agency in June 2012 after 34 years as an Information Assurance professional. He started his career in the Communications Security (COMSEC) Intern Program, and worked as a mathematical cryptographer and a software vulnerability analyst.  After moving into leadership positions, Tony helped found and then led the Systems and Network Attack Center, oversaw all Red and Blue Team projects, established and led security product evaluation teams, helped guide the agency's top talent development programs, served as the founding chief of the Vulnerability Analysis and Operations Group (comprised of 700 of the NSA's top technical cybersecurity specialists serving the defensive mission), and was the Chief Operating Officer for the Information Assurance Directorate. Tony also led the release of NSA security guidance to the public starting in 2001, and greatly expanded NSA’s role in the development of open standards for security.

Mr. Sager holds a B.A. in mathematics from Western Maryland College and an M.S. in computer science from The Johns Hopkins University.  Tony is also a civilian graduate of the US Army Signal Officer Basic Course and the National Security Leadership Course.
