Security Newsletter
April 23, 2020
Hello Security Community Members,

The team at MassTLC is taking a great deal of time to think through how we best provide you with the most valuable information and a place to strengthen your network. As security teams are facing intense pressure to protect their companies and assets in a fully remote world, it is more important than ever to have a trusted network to ask for and offer help.
One opportunity to do that is to take advantage of MassTLC Central's Security forum. This is a safe platform - no sales, no gimmicks. Only MassTLC members and only those with security roles are invited to join.  Please sign up here and get started with the security community forum!

We will also be hosting a forum for security professionals in an open discussion to share best practices on social engineering and business continuity planning. More information here. 

I want to take this time to thank our community sponsor, Deloitte , for supporting us as we continue to bring you programs and information.

If you have questions, concerns, or information you'd like to share please reach out to me. 

Best regards,

Sara Fraim
Sr. Director
