What we're about

Beers with Engineers is a local meetup that includes networking, panel discussions, Q&A, and of course, the best brews in town. Each quarter, we discuss an emerging or trending topic in technology. This is the perfect opportunity to get your burning questions answered by industry experts. Bring your friends or gain new friends with common interests. A variety of technical levels of engineers are welcome to learn, grow, and network, including students over 21. No sales pitches.

VIRTUAL - Lessons Learned from the Pandemic: Remote Work & Security

*Must Signup Through Eventbrite* https://bwe2021q1.eventbrite.com 3:30 PM EST As the transition to remote work commenced, one big question arose - how can business be kept running smoothly? New remote workers also introduced new vulnerabilities, not only because of new devices and networks accessing company data, but also because of increasing threats. Phishing attacks have skyrocketed with a 350 percent increase since the beginning of last year. Our panel will share their own challenges, successes, and lessons learned related to: -Lack of proof of business continuity planning -Existing network structure and capacity strain -Handling remote work vulnerabilities, compliance and security requirements -Interruptions to normal Administrative and IT Operations programs Meet our panelists: -Nick Defoe, Director of Information Security at US Signal -Jim Schuyler, Solution Architect at US Signal -Tom Drez, CIO/CPO/CSO/Managing Director CIPP at Christian Brothers Services -Michael Cansler, IT Infrastructure Engineer at Mepco ///We're continuing Beer On US!/// Be sure to check your email after you register for a confirmation email from Eventbrite.
