Thank you to all of those that participated in our very first interactive event about the Best Practice Assessment (BPA) tool! We had a great time engaging (virtually) with all of you.
Nick Curtis along with Chadd Christiansen were able to give a great presentation about the BPA tool and how to use it.
Here’s What Our Experts Had to Say:
Nick Curtis/@DawgsFan: "I had the pleasure of leading the LIVEcommunity’s Interactive Event centered around the Best Practice Assessment. We were able to cover an overview of the BPA, benefits it delivers, and the various methods to generate a BPA. Overall the session was a success with a lot of very good questions asked by our participants. We left feeling that we were able to further spread the word about BPA, why it’s important to run it regularly, and how to use it to improve your security posture. I’d like to give a big THANK YOU to all who helped including Sam Sunku, Chadd Christiansen, Seetha Pillai, Joe Delio, Kim Wens, and all the LIVEcommunity team that helped bring this great event together.
Chadd Christiansen/@cchristiansen: "The LIVEcommunity interactive event on BPA was informative and engaging. I enjoyed hearing feedback from the BPA user community and look forward to the next event."
