Two Hundred Information Security Professionals Meet Annually at International Conference

CARY, NC – Earlier this May, two hundred information security professionals gathered at Grandover Resort in Greensboro, NC for the 13th Annual IT Hot Topics Conference. The event was hosted by nationally-recognized technology infrastructure and security solutions leader Carolina Advanced Digital, Inc. This year’s meeting was held for 3 days and was the largest in conference history. IT Hot Topics Conference is one of the most prestigious security events in the area. An event that started as a technical user group, IT Hot Topics Conference has blossomed in to a full conference, with internationally-known speakers and top notch technical sessions. Attendees participate in the conference for free as part as Carolina Advanced Digital’s InfoSec Community Outreach Program. Through this program, industry professionals are given opportunities for networking and professional development. “This year we incited attendees to break the mold of break-fix maintenance and instead focus on strategic technology design; a goal I think we achieved through hand-selected speakers and topics,” noted John Jabbusch, President and Chief Engineer of Carolina Advanced Digital. “The energy and feedback from this year’s conference was overwhelmingly positive and we look forward to again upping the game in 2015.” Conference events included breakfast with keynote Katie Moussouris of Microsoft’s Bounty program, a lockpick village hosted by TOOOL, more than 30 technical sessions covering topics such as cybersecurity, infrastructure, application security, mobile security and strategic planning, and Friday’s IT Hot Topics Conference Golf Tournament. Conference sponsors included HP, Barracuda Networks, Bradford Networks, Citrix, AirTight Networks, 7signal, WinMagic, Xirrus, Meru Networks, Exinda, Dell SonicWALL, Motorola/Bluestar, Varonis, Maas 360, and SYNNEX Corporation. Industry partners included (ISC)2, ISSA, UNC...

First Public Educational AIS Training Offered by Carolina Advanced Digital, HP and CCCC

Central Carolina Community College has become North America’s first public educational institution to offer training in Hewlett Packard’s ProCurve Networking products. The college and the corporation have signed a contract for the college to offer the training at its North Carolina School of Telecommunications, in Sanford. Central Carolina C.C. is the first Hewlett-Packard ProCurve Networking training academy center in North America outside a corporate setting. HP plans to expand its ProCurve Networking training program to other schools, based on what it learns from this initial college training experience at the NCST. When it does, Central Carolina C.C.’s service area for offering training will be North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia. It is anticipated that network technicians and engineers will still enroll at CCCC from other states and other countries. The ProCurve Networking course is designed for network and information technology technicians and engineers who configure and deploy switches and routers. Those completing the training are prepared to take the Accredited Integration Specialist (AIS) examination, certification offered by the HP Certified Professional Program. “This is an important step forward in information technology training opportunities provided by Central Carolina,” said college President Bud Marchant. “It is a testament to the quality that has always been the hallmark of the college’s North Carolina School of Telecommunications.” Marchant said offering the HP ProCurve training will also benefit the local economy. Networking engineers and designers wanting to learn ProCurve will come to the area for training and stay in the hotels, eat at the restaurants, buy gas, and otherwise contribute to the economy. HP Networking Division, headquartered in Roseville, Calif., is the second largest manufacturer of...
