Dear Rob,

Please join ISSA KC chapter members and other security professionals at Lidia's on January 23rd, 2020.

Topic:
Security Operations Maturity Model (SOMM)

Summary:
Effective security operations are the first line of defense when it comes to preventing cyberattacks. To accomplish this, organizations need mature and measurable programs that leverage people, process, and technology to rapidly detect and respond to sophisticated attacks. This presentation will outline a model for Security Operations maturity. Organizations can use this model as a basis to evaluate their current security operations maturity level and develop a roadmap to achieve the level that is appropriate in the light of their specific resources, budget, and risk tolerance.

Speaker:
Dan Geisler is an Enterprise Sales Engineer at LogRhythm, where he works to plan, architect and deliver practical security solutions that meet business objectives and risks. With over 18 years of experience in networking and Information security, he provides industry knowledge and strategic guidance to his clientele. Prior to LogRhythm, he held sales engineer and consulting roles focused on network security and IT infrastructure.

You are invited to attend our next SQL User Group meeting!  

 

January 2020 Meeting

Our January meeting features a live presentation from Brent Ozar.
Presentation Synopsis:
Why is the Same Query Sometimes Slow?

You swear nothing has changed, but all of a sudden, out of nowhere, queries that used to be fast are suddenly slow. Even weirder, you take the slow query from the application, run it in SSMS, and it's totally fast! What's going on? You restart SQL Server or update statistics, and the problem seems to go away - but only for a few days or weeks, and then it comes right back. You're familiar enough with execution plans to realize that you're getting different plans, but...why? And how do you fix it long term?

In this session, you'll see live demos of the most common culprit: parameter sniffing. You'll learn how to recognize parameter sniffing when it strikes, understand what causes it, see how to fix it short term with the lowest impact possible, and learn 7 ways to fix it long term.

To get the most out of this session, you should have already watched the free online class How to Think Like the Engine, and be familiar with using SET STATISTICS IO ON to see logical reads.
Meeting Location:
Farm Credit Services of America, 4979 S 118th St, Omaha, NE

Meeting Time:
Wednesday, January 22, 2020 6:00 PM.
Meeting Sponsor:

Speakers

We are always looking for speakers!  Our group would love to have you speak and present on projects you're working on, new technologies, problems you've solved, development practices, or anything else you'd like to share.  Our strength is in our community, and we are all interested in learning additional skills!  Please reach out to me if you'd like to speak - even if it is for a short presentation.  Do not feel like you have to cover an entire meeting's worth of content.  If you know of someone that would be a great speaker, or a topic that you'd like to have presented, please reach out!

If you do not immediately see us then tell the Denny's staff that you are here for the Kansas City Video Game Developers Meetup group.

Open to anyone in the area who is interested in developing video games. In order to have a little structure, we'll try to do a couple things each week:

Introduce new members. What have you worked on, game related or not? What do you want to work on next?

Discuss this week's conversation starter. Some article, video or game that we can dig into a little.

Members can present any games they're working on, for feedback or just to brag.

Of course, it's all very informal. The main goal is interesting conversation(s) about our passion.

Looking forward to it!
