Defending Against DDoS - June 4, 2014

Defending Against a DDoS Attack on a Budget: Non-Fiction

Tim Rettig, InTrust Group

Hear the true story of a small insurance company’s website that was the target of a large-scale DDoS that lasted a month. Find out how the site was kept up during that time while still staying within budget. Learn what options were tried, what worked and what didn’t work, and the actual configuration of the final solution that kept their site alive.


VOIP for Home - May 7, 2014

Allen Miller's business includes Business VOIP Phone Systems.  However, for the May meeting Allen is going to show you how - for a very small investment (like $30) - you can get rid of your home land line and convert all the analog phones in your house to a very low cost VOIP monthly phone bill for a few dollars per month.  Feel free to invite a friend to this meeting.
