Running a Threat Based Vulnerability Management Program
by Ryan Whalen from Tenable Network Security

Security organizations have no problem finding vulnerabilities on enterprise networks – the volume of security data is constantly growing. The greater challenge is sifting through this data to determine which of these vulnerabilities pose the greatest risk to the business and prioritizing remediation efforts. Using available threat data and performing attack path analysis enables a strategic, threat-based approach to vulnerability management and remediation.

How to Speed up Your Shell Scripts
by Ed Smeltz

If you were the coach of a track team and you wanted to win a relay race, you would naturally want to pick your best runners at that distance for that relay team. Shell programming is no different in that some commands are dramatically faster than others at a given task. And some ways of combining and using commands in shell are significantly faster than others. We will examine the issues involved and discuss specific techniques to get the most performance out of your shell scripts.

Ed’s Bio:
With more than three decades of IT experience, Ed Smeltz is a senior technical consultant with Rolta Advizex. The author of the “High Performance Linux Shell Programming Reference,” he combines the application acceleration techniques he pioneered and implemented at Motorola Fort Worth in the 1980’s with the bash/korn/bourne shell programming he has used in his work as a consultant since 1999.


Don’t forget to come early, starting at 6:00 PM, for pizza and pop.

Another great meeting from NEO Info Sec Forum – we hope to see you there!
