At Intrinium, we strive to offer as many opportunities as possible to further education, encourage team collaboration, and networking across our industry. Last weekend, our Managed Security Services team headed to the Portland Convention Center for BSides Portland conference, where they were able to engage with hundreds of other individuals in the Infosec community. Portland is just one of the many homes to BSides, this year alone, our team has attended, BSides Seattle, Portland, and Sacramento. This event is specifically unique and different in many ways, unlike other conferences, the event is free, open to the public and accessible. Unlike larger conferences, you will often have the chance to catch up with presenters in the hallway and sit shoulder to shoulder with experts that would be inaccessible at most larger conferences. During this year’s conference, we were overwhelmingly impressed with the content, from management to day to day Security Operations Center, it offered a variety of InfoSec topics that were relevant and applicable to our day to day work. The team was most impressed by the discussion on digital forensics, SOC Training, and Internship and Threat Modeling workshops. We hope that you will stay tuned as we continue to tour the country to continue to expand our industry knowledge and awareness.
