Attendance was one of the largest we've had in recent months.

    The Southeastern Cyber Security Summit on Jun 3-4, 2015 in Huntsville was an excellent showcase for Cyber Security professionals, educators and administrators.  All that did not attend this year's SCSS should mark Jun 9 & 10, 2016 on their calendars and attend next year's event.  This event is sponsored by the North Alabama Chapter and the Cyber Huntsville initiative. 

    Our May meeting was an exciting time for all.  Mr. Josh Smith, Dynetics, presented the "hackers" view of PowerShell and demonstrated several exploits.

    Although we had to cancel our March Chapter meeting due to winter weather in our area, our April Chapter meeting was a success with Ernie Pritchard from Packet Ninja discussing Incident Response Planning relative to a cyber breach.  All enjoyed Ernie's insight and thoughts.
