Meeting: 2018.03.28 Written by thehask on March 20, 2018

March Madness!

Surprise! We are back this month, many thanks to ESET for graciously stepping up to sponsor.

That pretty much sums up the month before AtlSecCon, the board and I are very busy handling all the details associated with putting on the best conference experience that we possibly can. Speakers have now been selected and notified, sponsors are being assigned tables and ticket sales are starting to come in. If you have not purchased your ticket yet, be sure to head over to to participate in workshops, talks and everything Infosec, you definitely do not want to miss the first year in the new venue.

This is a great opportunity to meet the ESET team and take in their presentation on attacker Tactics, Techniques and Procedures (TTP). Definitely a great talk leading up to the conference for next month.

HASK is community oriented and community driven, if you would like to contribute a talk feel free to contact myself or any of the members of the board for submission. Looking forward to seeing you all and having another great meeting.

Thank you,
Travis and the AtlSecCon Board.
