Look no further: the technical experts of GuidePoint Security will be present at the Black Hat, BSidesLV, and DEF CON conferences in August to answer all of your pressing information security questions.

Participating alongside GuidePoint Security are vendors Checkpoint, ForeScout, Kaspersky, Skybox, and Tenable. Look for our participants at any of the above conferences — we’ll be wearing matching t-shirts and/or buttons that say “Ask the Experts” at each event. We encourage attendees to stop and talk with our technical experts for a ten-minute, free consultation. We’ll be making ourselves available to answer any security questions your organizations have, whether they’re federal or commercial-related. GuidePoint Security’s expertise is in Information Security, and we strive to share our knowledge on relevant products and services.

Following the Black Hat and Def Con conferences, GuidePoint Security will be hosting social networking events (see details below), and welcome all conference attendees to join us.
