Homegrown Security Tools - A Panel & Audience Discussion

Thursday, March 23, 2023

Category: Cyber Security
Do you have a favorite security script or open-source security tool you've integrated in a unique way on your own network or systems?  It could be anything from automated network scans & baselining to traffic anomaly detection,  host-based intrusion detection/prevention, or honeypots & tarpits.  Anything is fair game.  It can use vendor-specific solutions (like R5/BigIP, Cisco or Fortinet, etc), all open source tools, or a mashup of various tidbits.  The only thing is, it should be super useful.. and should not equate to a product sales pitch. Join the RBTC’s CyberSecurity forum for a hybrid panel and audience discussion around the best homegrown security tools.  Join the convo or come to hear new ideas, tips, and tricks.
Local food and craft beverages provided upon arrival. Interested in presenting? Contact Tweeks ahead of time. Or if you're more comfortable showing up and sharing from the audience…that's cool too!
