Hi Everyone,

Our next talk will be on May 21st 2015 when Rey Perez from HUIT will talk about Security.

His presentation will touch on how computer systems may be "hacked" or broken into and what one can do at the desktop, network, host, and application level to try and prevent this.

Rey will also conduct a small demonstration to show how some of the hacking tools work.

For the technical inclined, there will be some code samples as part of the Application Level section of the discussion.

When it comes to security use the The X-Files Motto: “TRUST NO ONE”.

We will meet in the Seeley G. Mudd building room 106 (SGM-106) starting at Noontime on Thursday May 21st. The talk will start at approximately 12.15pm.

Please RSVP by replying to this email, so that we can ensure that we have enough lunch for everyone, if we get a huge response we may move to another location. We will follow up with more details as we get closer.

Feel free to let us know if there's other areas you'd like Rey to cover. If we’re unable to cover them, there will be at least 30 - 45 minutes after the talk for Q/A.
