First 2011 Snort Webcast Registration is Open!

Just wanted to announce that Registration for the first 2011 Snort Webcast is now open at the following link:

https://sourcefire.webex.com/sourcefire/onstage/g.php?t=a&d=793571014

Our Presenter is Nick Moore of Sourcefire and he'll be presenting the first of a two part series on simply getting started with Snort.  How to set it up, running, and working with traffic.

When you click on the above link, you will see a "Register" link on the left-hand side of the page.  Click that for pre-registration.

What does pre-registration get you?  Reminders.  You'll receive a reminder the 11th (Monday) and an hour before we begin so you'll be sure to remember to attend.

The registration form only asks for a couple things so we can remind you about the event.  Registering for the event does not mean that you will start to receive sales information, we're simply using the information for numbers (how many registered, how many attended) information.

Topic: Snort Webinar Training
Date and Time:
April 13, 2011 11:00 am, Eastern Daylight Time (New York, GMT-04:00)
Event number: 793 571 014

Thanks!

Time to move on to a new job.

For the past, almost 6 years, my employment at Sourcefire has been great.  I've worked in Professional Services, going around to over 150 customers, educating them on Sourcefire, the product, the GUI, detection, and all the awesome that is, but..... it's time for me to move on.

I accepted a position last October with Sourcefire, being in charge of OpenSource Community Management, in charge of coordinating the communities themselves and being the liaison between the communities and the company (Sourcefire) for all OpenSource products.  This has been great.

Well, I'm pleased to announce that, I am retaining this new role as I go, so I will still be the OpenSource Community Manager for Sourcefire.  

Where am I moving to?  A company you may have heard of:
Sourcefire.

That's right, I'm staying right here.  Effective today, I'm moving out of Sourcefire's Professional Services team and moving to the Vulnerability Research Team (VRT), the team at Sourcefire that is responsible for publishing detection for Snort, ClamAV, and Razorback.

My new role has me writing detection for Snort primarily, moving into writing detection for ClamAV and even vulnerability research down the road.

I'm pretty excited about this move, as you can probably tell, and look forward to working with my new team.  

P.S.  I know I write this on April 1, but it's not an April Fools joke ;)
