Announcements, Gossip, and Smack Talk

– Welcome to Episode 9 of the SFS Podcast. Tonight we are recording in front of a live audience at the Gordon Biersch Brewery in Buckhead. The recording took place right after the
Atlanta NAISG meeting featuring Michael Farnum with Accuvant. Michael joins us tonight as we talk about security and who knows what else.
– Follow us on Twitter (@SFSPodcast) where we’ll be tweeting about new episodes & interviews.
– The podcast is intended to fill the gap between the technical podcasts on security and Security Now. We’ll be focusing on operations, leadership, and news items that you may have
missed the week before.
– We want the podcast to be friendly, funny, and make it so you can listen to it with your kids in the car. Nothing against Pauldotcom and Exotic Liability (we listen to them too!) but we
wanted to do something a little bit different…
