THWACK Monthly Mission - October 2020


It’s October and it’s time to party! Although we can’t celebrate in person this year, Sekurityfest is never canceled. Grab your pretzel and a pair of lederhosen and join us for our monthly shenanigans.

Whether it’s your day job or side hustle, we’re all invested in security and, just like the party, it’s 24/7. Kick back, relax, and enjoy the ride – bratwurst anyone?
