Grecs’ Weekly Infosec Ramblings for 2009-11-26

If you’re not already following the NovaInfosec Twits and are wondering where to get the best tweets about security in the NoVA, DC, and MD area, look no further than this post.

Posted every Friday, our “Infosec Ramblings” post takes the best security tweets from the past week and puts them into one easy to digest post.

If you don’t want to wait an entire week to read the best security tweets, be sure to stop by @grecs or learn more about the NovaInfosec Twits.

There weren’t any meetups this past week but this one did sneak in at the last minute. Plus there were the normal Node meetings. Did you get to attend any?

  • Didn’t get pushed out 4 sum reason. Anyway. DC Org of Hackers Infosec Meetup Event – Wed, 11-25: Normal Meeting #
