Upcoming Meetings

Tuesday, June 15, 2021 - 6:00pm

As the world moves from Web2 to Web3, threats are evolving. Moving forward, we need a framework for not only protecting against cryptocurrency and blockchain attacks, but also a method to share that information. In this talk, Rick will discuss some of the threats he has seen at some of the top cryptocurrency exchanges as well as discuss a framework for threat intel in the future.
