This week a milestone has been achieved. Or, put another way, I’ve been able to cross “help Laurie with the marketing flyer” off my things to do list. It’s been on there for a long time. We have been working diligently since May to create an EXCELLENT agenda for the IT Security Conference coming up on October 13th and 14th in Indianapolis.
Since I was really excited last year, the first time I got to facilitate the conference, I’m really really excited this year. The speakers we have been able to line up are fantastic! Jack Vonder Heide alone is worth the admission price. But we’ve also lined up Raj Patel, a hero of mine from Plant Moran. Susan Orr, Cathy Judge, Darrel Arbaugh, Bob Foley, and Paul Onischuck (yes, from the FDIC) are all icing on the cake!
I get to do “Hack Attack Live” this year . . . . part of a tradition we’re creating to demonstrate how easy it is to hack into your systems if you are not diligent. I mean, if Dan can do it . . . . . we’re ALL in trouble.
Indeed, that’s what I wanted the flyer to say: “If Dan can learn how to hack into this website, we’re ALL in trouble.” But Laurie Rees at the IBA thought that was too self-deprecating and may even turn away potential attendees who don’t know what a goofball I am.
Though I didn’t agree, I’ve learned that Laurie Rees is always right, so I went along with her recommendations and came up with a different session description. You can read it by downloading the flyer here.
Don’t be afraid to forward it to your associates!
