Thank you to everyone who attended our October 3rd, 2022 meeting both in person and virtually.

I just want to remind everyone once again about the amazing conference event called the 2022 Cyber Security Summit that is happening on October 14th 2022 7:30 am – 6:00 pm. Leo graciously shared SDSUG's registration code SDSUG22 allowing for free attendance of the conference. Please do not let this rare opportunity pass you by.

If you find yourself not recalling the email for CPE credits:

  • John Nash: For managing the CPE credits and all the behind the scenes work he does in the Arizona cybersecurity community.
