A Can't-Miss Event You Can't Miss

Usually, if you miss an industry event, you're out of luck. As Dark Reading winds up today's big virtual security event, though, I suddenly realize -- it's not over yet. "Risk, Protection, and Access: Mastering Today's Security Threats," originally held on Oct. 23, was the first-ever virtual conference co-produced by Dark Reading and our big sister publication,

Usually, if you miss an industry event, you're out of luck. As Dark Reading winds up today's big virtual security event, though, I suddenly realize -- it's not over yet.

"Risk, Protection, and Access: Mastering Today's Security Threats," originally held on Oct. 23, was the first-ever virtual conference co-produced by Dark Reading and our big sister publication, InformationWeek. Check out the video:

This all-day event was designed to allow you to see live multimedia presentations by the big names in the industry -- including superhacker Kevin Mitnick and Metasploit founder HD Moore -- without getting up from your office chair. But unlike most live events, you could've missed this one entirely -- but you can still watch it when you have available time.

If you'd like to check out what you missed, just go to the Virtual Security Event site and have a look around. The sessions that took place today are all available on an on-demand basis in the "Auditorium" on the site.

Take a look at the speakers who appeared at the event. You'll see many names you recognize, including Robert "RSnake" Hansen, who's been at the center of two of the biggest vulnerabilities disclosed in recent weeks. The speakers talked about problems you're dealing with today, including social engineering, tough-to-tackle vulnerabilities, and the potential fallout of cyberwar.

If I sound overly enthusiastic about this event, it's because I am. Virtual events like this could open up new avenues for security education and debate, because they eliminate the high hurdles of long airline flights and pesky expense reports. If we can get people talking without forcing them to leave their desks, then we might have a shot at speeding up the process of finding solutions to security problems.

Unlike most live events, this one is literally can't-miss, because you can pull it up anytime between now and January, whenever you have the time. We hope you'll take a look and let us know what you think.
