Leveraging Social Media When Engineering Tomorrow's Cyber Solutions

G2's Emerging Presence Online

At G2, we recognize that the most valuable cyber solutions begin with

meaningful collaboration.  On any given day, you can find our
engineers huddled around whiteboards solving the federal
government's most difficult cyber challenges.  Whether we're working on malware analysis, big data analytics, or security automation, G2
is committed to removing the barriers between its engineers and the broader cyber community. We believe that today's cyber engineer can interact with his or her peers in more productive ways, when leveraging the power of social media.

At this year's Social Media Strategies Summit (hosted by @gsmionline)industry experts discussed how companies and employees can interact with others well beyond their existing networks.  Conference speakers
like Jennifer Cohen Crompton, Glenn Selig, and Patrick Baynes spoke on topics like search engine optimization (SEO) and developing meaningful content.  They stressed the fact that thoughtful preparation (using industry-specific terminology, high-frequency search terms, and stimulating subject matter) can lead to greater visibility on social media sites.  By leveraging this strategy when tweeting, updating linkedin, and blogging, a software engineer in Ft Meade, MD can collaborate with a computer scientist at Google to produce tomorrow's computer network defense systems. Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter to help our engineers lead innovative discussions with other SMEs. While we are committed to sharing useful content via social media, we encourage our employees, industry colleagues, and friends to actively participate in the dialogue.

In summary: know your audience, create valuable content, connect & collaborate.

What types of cool techniques are you using to expand your online footprint?? We're listening!

An Open Letter to Our Nation's Veterans

Today I enjoyed a wonderful day with my oldest daughter Madeleine.  The highlight of our day was a walk in the woods which ended with a beautiful Eastern Shore sunset.   
Today, I am reminded that this simple pleasure was possible only because of the selfless service of so many men and women who committed their lives to serving our Country.  
To our Vets, I thank you for all that you have done to defend our great Nation.  Your commitment is what guarantees our freedom.  
We are all indebted to you.  From the entire G2 family, thank you.
- Paul Green, CEO
