Colleagues,

I have some exciting news! Ms. Kim Zetter, author of the book: “Countdown to Zero Day, Stuxnet and the Launch of the World’s First Digital Weapon”, is our guest speaker for the 18 July lunch meeting. She’s an award-winning investigative journalist who specializes in cybersecurity and national security, as well as privacy and civil liberties issues. I read her book some time ago, it’s excellent! I highly encourage everyone to read it. Top cybersecurity journalist Kim Zetter was among the first journalists to cover Stuxnet after its discovery and has also broken numerous stories over the years about WikiLeaks, NSA surveillance, and the hacker underground.

Please register ASAP (Click Here!) to meet and hear from this excellent guest speaker!

Please note that our lunch meeting this month will once again be held at the Hewlett-Packard Enterprise (HPE) facility located at 305 South Rockrimmon Blvd. To ensure maximum attendance, we’re only holding a lunch meeting in July. The dinner meeting is cancelled. Additional info will be on our website and in emails soon. Please note that the HP facility sits ~600 feet west off Rockrimmon.

As usual, lunch is free for members. Non-members may join us for this meeting by registering and paying $12 to help offset the cost for the lunch meal. Feel free to invite colleagues to join us, but please have them register and pay to attend.

Also, please note that registrations for this event will close two days prior to the event so we’ll have a good head count for our caterer.
