Grecs’ Weekly Infosec Ramblings for 2010-06-03

If you’re not already following some of our excellent NovaInfosec Twits and are wondering where to get the best NoVA-, DC-, and MD-related security tweets, look no further than this post. Published every Friday, our “Infosec Ramblings” post takes many of my security tweets/RTs from the past week and puts them into one easy to digest post. And if you don’t want to wait an entire week, just stop on by my @grecs Twitter account.

There seemed to be … aaaahhhh … one meetup this past week. Did you get to attend it? (Of course tonight two local 2600s will be in action.)

There’s also an upcoming meetup I tweeted three times about for those of you who are interested.

If you don’t have time to make it to any of the weekly security meetups, why not try attending this upcoming conference? It’s sort of a big deal. 🙂

For those of you that don’t know, we have some pretty awesome infosec bloggers in the local area. You can check out some of their articles below.

In case you missed them, here were some of our blog posts from this week.

And if you haven’t heard, I am trying to clean up my Twitter stream a bit.

  • Trying to clean up my Twitter stream some. From now on.. #

And in closing, who could forget the tweet of the week?

Well, that’s all for this week. Be sure to follow me on Twitter at @grecs for more great tweets during the week! See ya…
