Along with working on our own events like TechDays and EnergizeIT I also work in the community supporting the local technology user groups and other events such as SecTor. I have been participating on the SecTor 2009 advisory committee as we pull together keynote and breakout session speakers, hand on labs and such. This is the 3rd year for SecTor and this year we are introducing the Canadian IT Security Awards.
There are three categories:
- Non-commercial [i.e. free] Security Product, which helps detect and protect systems and information from threats;
- Commercial Security Product which helps detect and protect systems and information from threats;
- Overall Security Solution which helps detect and protect systems and information from threats.
“The awards dovetail nicely with the momentum that we’ve been building in the industry over the past two years” says Brian Bourne, Co-Founder, SecTor. “There’s no other IT Security event in Central Canada that brings together the industry’s top professionals and vendors from Canada and beyond. It makes perfect sense to call out and award the best products and practices at SecTor.”
