Next Meeting

We will be holding our 2009-Q3 meeting on Wednesday, September 9 from 6PM to 8PM. Wes Brown of IOActive had to cancel due to a conflict. Tony Flick of FYRM Associates will fill in and present his Black Hat USA 2009 and DEFCON 17 Hacking the Smart Grid presentation.

"The city of Miami and several commercial partners plan to rollout a "smart grid" citywide electrical infrastructure by the year 2011. This rollout proceeds on the heels of news that foreign agents have infiltrated our existing electrical infrastructure and that recent penetration tests have uncovered numerous vulnerabilities in the proposed technologies. Simultaneously, the National Institute for Standards in Technology (NIST) has recently released a roadmap for producing Smart Grid standards. In this presentation, Tony will discuss the flaws with the current guidelines and map them to the criticisms of similar regulatory mandates, including the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), that rely heavily on organizations policing themselves."

Meeting Location

We meet quarterly at the Kforce building in Ybor. The address is:

1001 East Palm Ave. Tampa, FL 33605

Park in the Visitor spaces in the main parking lot that is off of East Palm Avenue. You will need to identify yourself at the security desk and ask how to get to Training Room B.
