IndySec 1

Our first official IndySec meeting was conducted last night. A thank you goes out to all that attended.

The meeting lasted around two hours and the topic of discussion ranged from IDS to network printer vulnerabilities (and what a pain it is to get the word out to the right people).

Look for more information on IndySec 2. We are working on speaker topics and a possible location change (downtown Indy).
