Vendor and Product Discussion Initiative

"Did you catch that big name speaker who was here in Vancouver last month?" Each of you likely receives a variety of material from vendors or some of you may want to market to the SIG members. Up to now the monthly SIG meetings have not focused on vendor products in order to avoid "sales pitch" meetings. Vendors want quality leads, while companies want access to experts on products.

The Security SIG has a new initiative underway to provide greater access for both vendors and purchasers while maintaining the current SIG meeting format. We have created a mailing list for the local infosec community where anyone who is registered can forward ideas for product pitches or other presentations. If an idea sounds like it has sufficient interest, the list moderator will collect names or poll the number of interested parties. The moderator will contact the vendor and give them a sense of what the interest level is like. The moderator will also pass on any requests such as having a senior technical expert attend or present. It will be up to the vendor to make arrangements such as venue, travel, etc.
