We meet the first Monday of every month in the amphitheater at the University of Advancing Technology in Tempe, AZ.
UAT theater at 2625 W Baseline Rd, Tempe, AZ 85283
The group meeting goes from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m with the first 1/2 hour of food & networking occurring outside of the theater as it is occupied by classes until 6:30 PM
Who We Are:
The Forum is a topic driven group who are looking for presenters and lively discussions with technical deep dives from an under the hood perspective. If you have any presenters or topics you would like to see in the future, or if you would like to sponsor one of our meetings, please contact John Nash at firstname.lastname@example.org or 480-239-7466.
We meet the first Monday of every month from 6pm to 9pm at the location announced in the email, or on this web site. We encourage all attendees to ask questions and share your experiences and expertise with the group so we can all improve our security skills. We do require all attendees to respect other's opinions, whether they agree or not, and keep the language and content appropriate for a business casual forum.
We are now working hard to record, edit and post our presentations online! This extends the participation of our sessions to any of our members and the general public and removes the restriction of having to attend the session in person (however we can't yet post the pizza and drinks for download)
Check out our YouTube Channel here!
We can now issue CPE certificates for individuals that either attend the meetings OR demonstrate that they have viewed the content on our YouTube channel.
For auditing purposes, Meeting attendees that wish to obtain CPE's are required to sign in legibly before the meeting, with name and proper contact information, so we properly record can cross check attendees.
To obtain CPE credit for viewing YouTube content, you must 1.) sign up for a YouTube account 2.) login and watch the entire video with your YouTube account 3.) either record in the video comments section your name or personal identifier, OR if you wish to preserver your anonymity a hashed value of the email we have on file for you 4.) email email@example.com with the date/time of your viewing and the hashed value. We will confirm that it matches the email we have on file for you and consider that as evidence that you have reviewed the content. We apologize for the elaborate steps but this is required to validate the CPE process.
Here is an example of how to perform the hash on a Mac or any Linux system. In this case, we are hashing the email "firstname.lastname@example.org" using openssl. I would then paste that hash in the comments section of the YouTube video I watched.
Johns-iMac-Pro:~ jn$ echo -n "email@example.com" | openssl enc -base64 am9obi5zd2NzZkBnbWFpbC5jb20=
If you are even more security minded, you could use a public PGP key to generate your token. If so, contact us and we will provide that key, and instructions, as requested.
If you have any questions about CPE's contact John.
Here you can download and self-edit the CPE template giving you professional credits for attending or viewing one of our full meetings.
