Headed to Cybit!

Level 17

Greetings All!

I'm in the Big Apple, New York City, this week ... doing a presentation Wednesday morning at the Cybit Expo. Cybit is a "computer forensics" show, which focuses on Cyber Security and IT Security. My presentation is titled "Sharing Without Sacrifice: Managing Systems and Mitigating Risk in Today's Virtual Military" and I'll be talking about how to effectively monitor and manage virtual systems within the realm of military deployments, both mobile as well as stateside.

In addition to the presentation at CyBit, I'm scheduled to do some interviews with some media outlets, and we'll be talking about Cybit, my presentation (and whatever else those media outlets want to explore) 😉

If you're in the New York City area, let me know at @LawrenceGarvin ( or LinkedIn ( -- or just post a reply to this blog right here on Thwack.

I'll be monitoring all channels and I'd love to have a chance to meet you in person.

If you're not in NYC this week, I'll also be in the SolarWinds booth at TechEd North America (New Orleans) the first week of June or Cisco Live! (Orlando) the last week of June.

And don't forget your mom's on Sunday!!!!! 🙂

About the Author
I'm a Head Geek and technical product marketing manager at SolarWinds. I wrote my first computer program in RPG-II in 1974 to calculate quadratic equations and tested it on some spare weekend cycles on an IBM System/3 that I ‘borrowed’ from my father’s employer. After that I dabbled, studied, and actually programmed in just about every language known for the past 40 years; worked on a half-dozen different variants of Unix on 3B2s, RS6000s, HP9000s, Sparc workstations, and Intel systems; connected to CompuServe on a 300 baud modem; ran a FidoNet BBS on OS/2 on a 9600 bps modem; and started working with Windows when Windows NT4 was still the latest operating system. Along the way, I did a few years in database programming and database administration. I installed some of the first ADSL and SDSL Internet circuits in Texas, and then migrated into full-time Windows systems management, which had a lot to do with my interest in SUS and WSUS 10 years ago. This ultimately led me to EminentWare in 2009, and SolarWinds three years later.
