Information security and incident response are two sides of the same coin. However, far to often the information sharing cycle is short circuited and the top vulnerabilities that are exploited do not make it in to the next round of proactive testing.

In June's NYC4SEC meet-up, Michelangelo Sidagni, NopSec Chief Technology Officer, will analyze recent security breaches and forensic cases to create a top-ten list of most exploited security vulnerabilities ...and how the enterprise could easily avoid them. At the end of the talk a discussion will follow discussing forensic cases and related security vulnerabilities from the audience.

So please join us on Thursday June, 20th, 7:00pm at John Jay College of Criminal Justice,[masked]th Street, Room 630T for this exciting meet-up.
