NoVA Sec Meeting 1930 Thu 31 Jan 08

I was determined to start 2008 right by having a NoVA Sec meeting in January. Thursday night is our last chance, but thanks to last-minute coordination with Dowless and Associates we have a meeting location.

The next NoVA Sec meeting will take place 1930 Thursday 31 January 2008 at Dowless and Associates:

13873 Park Center Rd.
Suite 450
Herndon, VA 20171

Devin will speak and demo his One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) box.

Our host is requesting a list of names of attendees, so please RSVP via email (taosecurity at gmail dot com) by end of day Wednesday 30 January 2008. Thank you.

Remember, there are no dues and no requirements for membership. We do leave certifications, FISMA, the certification and accreditation (C&A) process, and related items in the parking lot.

2008 Meeting Schedule

I'd like to regularly schedule NoVA Sec meetings in 2008 as the fourth Thursday of every month. That puts the meetings after the OWASP Washington VA meetings on the second Thursday and the ISSA-NoVA meetings on the third Thursday.

With that in mind, here is the proposed schedule for 2008.

  • 24 Jan

  • 28 Feb

  • 27 Mar

  • 24 Apr

  • 22 May

  • No Jun meeting: FIRST conference

  • 24 Jul

  • 28 Aug

  • 25 Sep

  • 23 Oct

  • No Nov meeting: Thanksgiving

  • No Dec meeting: Christmas

I am working on securing speakers for the other meetings now. If you have a speaker in mind (including yourself) please let me know via email to taosecurity at gmail dot com. I am also looking for generous corporate souls to host the meetings. Thank you.

Update: There are monthly Thursday conflicts with CapSec. Please see our mailing list for ongoing discussion.
