It’s that time of year again! Carolina Advanced Digital would like to invite you to join us at our tenth annual IT Hot Topics Conference and Golf Tourney at the Grandover Resort in Greensboro, NC. Seating is limited and the event is free for CAD customers as part of the CAD Customer Loyalty Program. CAD’s IT Hot Topics Conference is one of the largest 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 technical sessions unparalleled in the area. This year is the tenth anniversary of the conference. Each year, CAD designs content around the requests of the customers and attendees, identifying the industry’s most current “hot topics”, which is how the conference earned its name. Our partners—HP Networking, HP ESSN, Juniper, Meru Networks, Bradford Networks, SonicWALL, Trustwave Spiderlabs, Barracuda, UNC School of Government, LockFALE, ISSA, and Infragard—co-sponsor the event. The content is a mix of technology showcases from selected vendors, and special technology sessions presented by CAD’s engineering staff and invited speakers. All sessions are presented by practitioners and engineers, and no sales presentations are allowed. As part of the tenth anniversary celebration of the conference, we’ve decided to add a full day of hands-on labs, reserved for CAD customers and invited attendees only. We will have four hands-on lab sessions on Wednesday, May 2nd: HP Networking management, Meru Networks wireless, SonicWALL, and Pen Testing for Sys Admins. Lab details will be provided soon. Thursday, May 3rd, we’ll have a morning keynote by Chris Hoff, lunch keynote and special messaging from...
