We’ll end off the night with a new (VERY SPECIAL) guest speaker – Neil Desai – who will be talking about Network Defense Basics!

Neil Desai is a Principal Security Strategist at Elastic – the creators of the ELK stack! He has over two decades of information security experience. In past roles, he built Security Operations Centers (SOCs) and architected defensible and monitorable infrastructures for Fortune 500 US financial institutions. Neil is also one of the architects at C3X, so if you are interested in C3X… you will want to tune in!

Defending a network starts with protecting it. We’ll go over some network architectures/configurations that can be utilized to help defend a network and enable better monitoring.

Quite the night! Great segments all around and a super guest speaker to end off the night. Make sure you tune it!:fire: :100:
