THWACKcamp 2018 Preview - Six Ways to Improve Your Security Posture


  In case you’ve somehow missed the news, registration for THWACKcamp 2018  is now open! In our annual free, virtual, multi-track IT learning event, you’ll have the chance to hear from industry experts as well as SolarWinds Head Geeks and technical staff. I’m particularly excited for my “Six Ways to Improve Your Security Posture Using Critical Security Controls” session, happening October 17 at 11 a.m. CT.


     Security policies within organizations are under a lot of scrutiny these days. Luckily, the Center for Internet Security (CIS) has published Critical Security Controls as guidelines to help you maintain good cyberhygiene. The CIS Controls are created and updated by security professionals working to assist individuals in securing and protecting against common vulnerabilities and threats.


     In this session, join me and my security co-host of awesome, Senior Product Manager Jamie Hynds, as we discuss the top six CIS Controls and how you can use SolarWinds security management tools  to help back up these controls. You may already have these tools, but are you using them to help promote a secure environment?


     THWACKcamp is a live virtual learning event on October 17 – 18, 2018, featuring 18 sessions split into two tracks. Best of all, it’s monetary- and travel-free! Session topics include new technology, optimizing virtualization, automation guides, and thought leadership admins care about, not just vendor hype. Be sure to register today and attend to take advantage of live Q&A during each session!
