TASK Vegas

This month we have our ever-popular Vegas recap special being at the Michener Auditorium at UHN.

If you attended BlackHat, DefCon or BSidesLV – this is your chance to help your fellow TASK members by sharing a summary and some key lessons you learnt from a couple of different talks. If you went and can help us, please email info@task.to with the session/s you want to cover.

As always, TASK is free, registration is not required to attend, and we invite you to bring your friends and colleagues.

Thanks for your help, and we look forward to seeing you there!
