NetSquared groups provide a space for anyone interested in technology and social impact to connect, share ideas, and collaborate in-person.
We meet monthly and focus on nonprofit systems administration. Anybody who deals with tech at their nonprofit (or small business) is welcome; you do not need to be a professional full-time systems administrator. See our about page (http://www.meetup.com/NetSquared-Kitchener-Waterloo/about/) for more information.
We've talked about Malware (https://sobac.com/wiki/Malware) and the importance of Keeping Computers Up To Date (https://sobac.com/wiki/Keeping_Computers_Up_To_Date), and even just about The Things We Should Fear (https://sobac.com/wiki/What_should_we_fear%3F). But what new hazards are unveiled when you connect two or more computers together? When some of those computers aren't on your own network? When malusers are out there trying to break into your network? When you're actually inviting everyone into your network by running servers and services? Should you just outsource everything? Or are there tools available for the Non-Profit SysAdmin to help secure your networks?
We'll talk about the hazards of running a public network, and go over a list of tools and software
