Special Event, Time Sensitive
This announcement is special in a few ways. First, it's super late. The main event is Tuesday September 25. Second, this month has a special topic and guests - journalists speaking about misinformation in the media. Third, this time around, we'll also have free tacos and beer (for a limited time). Yes, you heard that right, free tacos and beer! That was not misinformation. The talks are as follows: Samantha Sunne, a freelance reporter, will demonstrate a suite of verification tools recommended by First Draft News, a misinformation think tank at the Harvard Shorenstein Center on Media. Email: [masked] GitHub: SamanthaSunne Twitter: SamanthaSunne Michael Isaac Stein, an investigative reporter at The Lens, will explain how he broke the story of Entergy "astroturfing" a City Council meeting, which was recently featured nationally on HBO's John Oliver Show. Email: [masked] Twitter: misaacstein Joe Sylve, Director of Research and Development at BlackBag Technologies, will talk about how journalists and developers can utilize digital forensics techniques in their day-to-day work. Twitter: @jtsylve Please make every effort to attend, and note that with three talk this month, we'll be stating a bit earlier than normal. The first talk will kick off by 6:15 or so. Pass it along to everyone, and hope to see you all there, Vico

    What we're about

    NOLASec is a collective of researchers, professionals, students, and hobbyists in the Computer Security and Digital Forensics and Incident Response (DFIR) space. Our purpose is to bring together members of all IT-related fields for a monthly meeting where a rotating list of speakers present on interesting topics in information security and members can then network in an informal environment. There is no membership process and there are no dues (but donations are always welcome).

    We generally have 2 speakers per monthly meeting using the "fire talks" format where speakers present for about 20 minutes each. After, we all hang out and attendees can ask the speakers questions as well as meet the other attendees. We have attracted a wide range of talks from high-level to highly-technical from some of the area's top information security experts. Our growth is based largely on word of mouth so feel free to invite anyone who you think may enjoy the events. Also, we are always looking for new speakers to keep things fresh every month, so have your ideas ready!
