G2 selected to speak at the 2015 RSA Conference

G2 received word this week that Tom Conkle has been accepted as a speaker that RSA 2015 Conference in San Francisco. Below is part of Tom's acceptance letter;

"The quality and quantity of submissions for RSA Conference 2015 were at an all-time high, making the selection process extremely competitive.

We are delighted to inform you that your session has been accepted to be part of the RSA Conference 2015 agenda, taking place April 20 - 24, 2015, at The Moscone Center in San Francisco, California. Your session is a valuable contribution to help make this year’s agenda one of the best ever!

Short Abstract: The Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) establishes a common language for describing cybersecurity activities. In 2015 it is anticipated that if voluntary adoption of the framework is not sufficient, the industry specific regulators will leverage the CSF as part of their regulatory oversight process. This session provides an overview and benefits organizations receive from aligning to the CSF."

We are very proud of Tom and the whole Federal and Commercial Practice here at G2.

Stay tuned, we'll post a video after the event.

Home Project by Paul Green

Here's Paul's latest Raspberry Pi project.

Take a perfectly good remote control car, rip out the parts that make it work, replace them with a programmable micro-computer (the pi and an Arduino-like board) and wa-la you have a computer controlled toy (via python & WiFi) and three kids who almost got excited about the Internet of Things...‪

It's become painfully clear to me, the cool factor lies in flight. So, after a quick upgrade to Bert, we'll be working on building our own drone I suppose.
