    Segment Title/Topic:
    Open to discussion, I’m happy to discuss anything! It might be cool to talk about the movement of our market to the Cloud, how LogRhythm is innovating in that area, and why total cost of ownership is important when looking at a SIEM platform.

Finally do a short demo walking through installing Signal Sciences in a Kubernetes environment and the Signal Sciences dashboard.

    Larry's Stories

    1. [https://healthitsecurity.com/news/200-million-devices-vulnerable-to-remote-takeover-via-vxworks-flaw

    Armis found 11 critical vulnerabilities in the VxWorks OS] - a platform found in 2 billion devices, including medical equipment and IoT devices; officials say patching will be long and difficult.

    1. Filecoder.C is targeting Android devices - through malicious links in online forums and then spreading via contact lists through SMS messages that attempt to entice others to install an app, according to research published Monday by the security firm ESET. And this is why I find the Android ecosystem to be a shitshow.
    2. BEC scam hits NC, losing 1.7 million - Security is just not an IT problem. Other areas of the organizations can put protective controls in process in place to prevent issues as well.
