powergrid.jpgFeeling the Geek Love - Three Tech Groups Bringing Technology, Information, and Security to You, Your Business, and Your Community

At the time of year when tech groups usually go on hiatus, we've got two groups stepping up with timely content, and a brand new group focussed on the latest buzz in data management and security.

The New Hampshire Chapter of the International Systems and Security Association (ISSA) is hosting a discussion called "Are We Ready? Examining United States Readiness for Cyber-attacks on the Power Grid" 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM on Wednesday, November 15th, in Portsmouth.

Much of our country's digital infrastructure is outdated and poorly secured.  Add to that the fact that many businesses outsource management of our resources to companies in foreign countries where there is very little oversite on who controls it and it makes the possibility of cyber attacks a real concern.  

Also this week, Code for New Hampshire, the local chapter of Code for America, will be hosting their first networking event and organizational meetup 6:30 PM on Tuesday, November 14th in Manchester.

According to their page on meetup.com, "Code for New Hampshire is an organization where people in all roles (coders, designers, planners, marketers, government officials) can get together to build stuff that benefits our community here in New Hampshire."

The last group I want to mention is the Manchester Blockchain Meetup. Data management and security are well outside my area of expertise, but even I know how hot blockchain is right now.  

The past couple months we've seen a few conferences and discussions on this topic around the state, and just a couple weeks ago I spent a good part of a four-hour flight leaning over my husband so I could read the slide deck the guy across the aisle was preparing for a presentation on blockchain.  if this is your thing, be sure to check out the group on meetup.com, they are currently looking for speakers and their first meeting is tentatively set for January.
