The weather isn't the only thing heating up in Colorado. Tons of new meetings posted this week, and a lot of great news. Funding for a Denver home automation company, a new CISO of the year award is posted, new cybersecurity rules for investment advisors and broker-dealers in Colorado, a new board member for Secure64, Swimlane win's an award, and a local company explains the CVE system. And my favorite... Palo Alto networks is working with the Girl Scouts to create cybersecurity badges. What a great world we live in.
