Brian drained from RE'ing malware? Tired at watching IDS alerts? Your FTK index keeps breaking? Have you been angrily typing then deleting, "kill the users" from your incident response reports?
We all get to those points where we need to unplug. For the next two months instead of walking you through exploits, artifact parsing or the latest SSL vulnerabilities, we are going to do some after work get togethers to unwind and socialize among our peers.
Please join us Thursday, 7/17 at 6:30 PM EDT (to whenever), at Rattle -n- Hum (http://www.rattlenhumbarnyc.com/) on 14 East 33rd St., New York, NY 10016 (https://www.google.com/maps/place/Rattle+N+Hum,+14+E+33rd+St,+Manhattan,+NYfirstname.lastname@example.org,-73.984236) (btwn 5th and Mad) for some beers and share some DF/IT/InfoSec stories!
Rattle n Hum has early 40 microbrews on tap, great pub food and a relaxed atmosphere - much better than the co-lo you were locked in at... while dumping data from a rack of severs... under a A/C vent.. for 5 hours.
Hope to see you all there!
Thanks to Willi Ballenthin ( https://twitter.com/williballenthin and http://www.williballenthin.com/ ) for throwing out the idea of a get together next week and allowing me to co-op the idea. We can kick around dates for August then too.
