On June 24th we had a successful kick-off to our in-person Meetups, with about 30 members meeting at Old Ox Brewery in Ashburn to discuss internships and other cybersecurity workforce solutions. Let’s keep the momentum going!
In our July Meetup, we’ll learn how a local Loudoun company is addressing a global problem: phishing. If you’re in cybersecurity, you know the danger of phishing as an attack vector for credential-theft or malware. Cofense, a standout Loudoun County success story headquartered in Leesburg, offers a Phishing Detection and Response platform that catches the phishing emails that secure email gateways inevitably miss.
On July 28th, we’ll hear from Mr. Aaron Higbee, Co-founder and CTO of Cofense. Aaron has more than 20 years of cybersecurity and senior management leadership. His prior experience includes senior security and consulting roles at McAfee Foundstone, Lucent, and Time Warner Cable.
Aaron pioneered the best practice of phishing simulations, now embraced by security teams in every major industry. He has driven research and development for the Cofense phishing defense platform. Under his guidance, Cofense has become the global leader in intelligent phishing defense, instructing millions of end users to recognize and report phishing threats and providing security operations teams with actionable phishing intelligence.Learn more
