Cybersecurity, Community & Connections! Last night we hosted Connecting With Crowdstrike, a gathering dedicated to giving insight and updates into Crowdstrike, their process into Cyber defense and how their teams have been keeping up with today’s challenges. Let’s get into our Signature Event!
To start us off we heard from Tony Bryan, Executive Director of CyberUp. His Session, Apprenticeship Accelerator, 120-Day Cybersecurity Sprint highlighted Cyberup’s Apprenticeship Accelerators which brings together apprenticeship stakeholders (employers, industry, labor, equity, and other workforce partners).
Afterwords, we heard from Devin Cargill, Principal Analyst at Crowdstrike. Devin broke down what a high level overview of CrowdStrike Services looks like as well as providing a case study of an Endpoint Recovery Services engagement that details how CrowdStrike investigated and removed a Threat Actor from a Client’s environment.
Next we heard from the allstar duo of Hunter Williamson, Former Intern At Falcon Complete & Michael Hernandez, Current Intern At Falcon Complete, as they discuss their experiences in CrowdStrike’s internship program and share a day in the life of Falcon Complete: Managed Detection and Response (MDR).
Finally two of our former speakers, Devin Cargill and Hunter Williamson were joined by Craig Sohn and Brandon Wunderle, both Managers at Crowdstrike. As these four led a Cybersecurity Industry Panel. A session dedicated to these industry professionals sharing their experiences, tips for acing your technical interview, and advice for those looking to break into the Cybersecurity Industry.
That’s a wrap up for a great event around Crowdstrike’s current updates! We hope all those who were able to attend walked away with a new appreciation and awareness as to what Cybersecurity can look like here in our ecosystem and how you can be connected to it!
