Meeting Nov 29th, 2017

Remember remember the 29th of November,

This will be our last meeting for 2017 as we break in December for family time over the holidays. We are very pleased to introduce you to first time HASK sponsor Digital Guardian, let’s give them a great welcome to the region and our community.

Along with our sponsored talk local HASKER Gurjeet Clair will be providing the community presentation. It is great to see attendees stepping forward to talk at a HASK meeting, I cannot think of a better way to sharpen public speaking and presentation skills.

The board has been very active planning for AtlSecCon (April 26-27, 2018) and we have received some great talks in response to the call for papers. Stay tuned to social media for announcements and updates along with round two of the CFP.

See you there,
Travis and the AtlSecCon Board.
