TASK meets the last Wednesday of Every Month 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm (with a few exceptions). Our next meeting is located at Michener Auditorium at UHN, 222 Patrick Street, Toronto.
Toronto's Security User Group TASK - Toronto Area Security Klatch, provides a forum for experts to encourage discussion and share expertise in understanding the latest trends and security threats facing computer networks, systems and data.
Our membership includes Information Security practitioners, managers, network administrators, students, and anyone who is interesting in learning more about securing information.
TASK meets the last Wednesday of each month, and membership is free.
The Toronto Area Security Klatch is an informal get-together of Information Security professionals (and those who want to be professional) that is held monthly in the Greater Toronto area.
We meet to discuss issues that we all share in common, including:
- New technologies and products that impact information security
- Emerging threats, and the vulnerabilities being exploited
- Managing security
- New laws and regulations
Our mandate is simple: to encourage discussion and share expertise in understanding the latest trends and security threats facing computer networks, systems and data.
We support this mandate by providing a non-biased forum to discuss issues. We do not focus on any particular technology or vendor.
Membership in TASK is free, and we encourage full and active participation. If you have a suggestion on how to improve a meeting or the website, we invite you to share it. In addition, we are always looking for individuals willing to take an active role on the Steering Committee.
Our meetings are three hours long, and follow the general format of:
- 6:00 - 6:15 Announcements, acknowledgement of our sponsors and general house keeping
- 6:15 - 7:00 First speaker
- 7:00 - 7:15 Q&A
- 7:15 - 7:45 Break
- 7:45 - 8:30 Second speaker
- 8:30 - 8:45 Q&A
- 8:45 - 9:00 Networking and closing remarks
During meetings we ask everyone to turn off the audible alarms on their cell phones, Blackberries, PDAs, and other cool gizmos.
In addition, TASK has adopted a Code of Conduct to help ensure that meetings go smoothly, and that everyone can benefit from the information that is available.
