Meeting: 2016.11.30 Written by thehask on November 29, 2016


The Halifax Area Security Klatch

Last Meeting of 2016!

Wow gang; November already. This will be our last meeting of 2016 as we break for the holidays in December. This month our sponsor is Rogers and my good friend Robin Veinotte will be presenting on their service offering. I am looking forward to hearing how things have changed and what they have been up to since IAI was acquired by Rogers almost a year ago.

The AtlSecCon board has been meeting regularly and things are really starting to come together. The call for papers is open and the quality of some of the submitted talks is phenomenal. We are expecting to raise the bar yet again for AtlSecCon 2017.

HASK is a community driven monthly meeting that is free and always will be. If you have an idea for a presentation please let us know, we welcome contributions and look forward to hearing what you have to say. Of course these meetings could not happen without vendor sponsorship, so please take a moment to listen to their presentations and interact with their local representatives.

Thank you,

Travis and the AtlSecCon Board.
