If you haven’t heard, tonight is the South Florida Joint Security Event. With almost 300 registered attendees we have secured a second room that is annexed to the Knight Auditorium – we will be live-streaming the main event, so you will not miss any of the action. Obviously networking opportunities will be at a premium so bring along plenty of business cards.
Following the event there will be an in-person meetup of the 2013 ITPalooza Organizing committee.
Mark your calendars for the upcoming 4th Annual Information Security Technology Showcase taking place September 19
In preparation for the upcoming PayPal BattleHack we will hold 2 Developer Meetups. The first will be at NSU’s Carl DeSantis bldg Fort Lauderdale (room to be announced), the second at The Beacon Council. Join either of these fantastic events to learn about the PayPal API and the BattleHack Community Challenge.

PayPal Developer brings you Battle Hack Miami— a global hackathon series to discover the Ultimate Hackers on Earth
It’s one thing when an individual tries to hack into your company but it’s quite another when foreign governments sponsor cyber-crimes and other malicious attacks. You might think that you are defenseless against such an onslaught; but all is not lost…
Join us and a panel of distinguished security experts, Tuesday July 23, 5pm at NSU’s Knight Auditorium for an in-depth look at what these threats mean and how you can apply best practices to stay one step ahead of the criminal spies.

Join Mission Critical Systems and 14 Information Security Experts in a day focused on securing your organization from attacks and vulnerabilities that threaten your business and reputation. Twenty minute technical presentations from each manufacturer will provide you with a detailed understanding of the technical aspects of their solutions. Manufacturers will have booths set up in the exhibit hall, staffed by engineers, to provide one-on-one product demos and discussions that relate to your specific goals and projects.
Mission Critical Systems would like to invite you to attend their IT Security Happy Hour. This is a fun event with plenty of food, drinks and no obligations. Help lift those summertime blues with good food and cold brews while mingling with others in the industry! They even have bull rides for everyone and a fun drinking game for the manufacturers (before they get on the mechanical bull of course).
The topic of this informal Happy Hour is Advanced Malware Protection, Detection, and Mitigation. There has been a huge uptick in Advanced Persistent Threats (APT’s) that have been hitting small, large, and enterprise corporations through targeted, focused attacks (RSA, Symantec, Google, Microsoft, Adobe, and many more) starting with phishing attacks and ending with machines infected by custom written malware via browser exploits that cannot be detected by normal anti-virus signature based techniques
The manufacturers presented have all partnered to take their individual products which work extremely well individually into more comprehensive complete solutions designed to detect compromised machines and prevent them from stealing data or compromising the rest of the network. It is very cool stuff.
