New York Information Security Community

Today was the first meeting of the New York Information Security Community (nyinfosec). nyinfosec provides an information security focus group for Long Island-based practitioners, but attendees from New York City are also welcome.

While the number of attendees was a little disappointing, the content of the discussion was great. We covered a great amount of topics, ranging from netflow analysis tools to DMCA infringement notices, via a little sidestep to policy development and incident response. 

All participants agreed that the initiative adds value, and that the meetings should continue. A new date has not yet been set, but we're shooting for a cycle that has meetings every 2-3 months.

If you are a security practitioner on Long Island or in New York City, please let me know and I'll be glad to provide you with more information.
