Hey all. Anyone in the Boston area interested in this? I've been a
couple of times when I worked at BU, and always found it a good
meeting. It'd be cool to have some Fedora-security-related talks.

Subject: [security-camp] Call for Papers: BC Security Camp, Winter 2015
Boston College will again be hosting winter Security Camp. This
year it will be held on THURSDAY, March 5, 2015.
In case of snow (it happened two years ago - we got hammered), we've
also reserved the room for FRIDAY, March 6, 2015.
Not yet open. Another message will be sent to this list when it is.
PLEASE do not register until the page updates to 2015.
To contact us:
We are seeking speakers, both to give individual presentations or to
participate in a panel or group discussion. If you are able to speak,
please let us know in the next week or so, along with what topic(s)
you would be interested in. ANY security topic is welcome.
To get your creative juices flowing, here are some possible topics for
either speakers or panelists:
- Security in virtualized environments
- Mobile device security
- Cloud security, CloudLock, Backupify
- Identity management / federation, Shibboleth, multi-factor
- Risk management (enterprise or IT)
- Legal, regulatory, or audit updates
- PCI-DSS 3.0
- Running security devices on high-speed networks
- Training & awareness programs
- Incident management: tell us how you managed a difficult incident
- Managing widespread vulnerabilities like Heartbleed, Shellshock and Poodle
- Managing network malware tools like FireEye or Damballa
- Denial of Service and Distributed DoS mitigation
- IT change management
If you do not want to prepare a talk, but would be willing to be on a
panel and chat about any of these topics, please let us know which
topic(s) -- panels are popular as they're more interactive and present
multiple viewpoints, and they also require little or no preparation
from the panelists. The last couple years we’ve done SIEM and next-gen
firewall panels that were really interactive -- what topic(s) would be
fun this year?
Best regards and looking forward to seeing everyone,
security-camp mailing list
