Grecs’ Weekly Infosec Ramblings for 2010-06-10

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 (well Monday this week), 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 quite a few meetups this past week. Did you get to attend any of them?

There’s also some upcoming meetups 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 plan on attending AppSecDC in November?

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 Ligatt seems to be all over Twitter as well…
