Last Friday we participated in the first Security B-Sides event here in Portland. More than 100 local information security professionals from Portland, Eugene and Seattle attended the event. The collaboration, networking and energetic presentations made it a very successful event. I am very pleased to have had the opportunity to be part of the organizing committee, as well as to work for an organization that supports the local community.
If you couldn’t join us, here are some short videos interviews that we recorded during the event.
