Ladies and gentlemen,


Good morning! My name is Jonathon Neel, and I am the conference chair for the 2012 VA SCAN Conference. This year’s conference will be held in Lexington, Virginia, at the Virginia Military Institute’s new Center for Leadership and Ethics, on October 9-10.


The VA SCAN Conference is an annual event that brings together over 150 information security professionals from all across the Commonwealth of Virginia. It’s a great opportunity to hear security presentations from subject-matter experts and network with other like-minded individuals. As usual, VA SCAN is offering a great SANS course on the second day of the conference for a very, very low additional cost. This year’s course is SEC 580.1: Metasploit Kung Fu for Enterprise Pen Testing.
