Please join me on June 19th for the Pikes Peak Writers June Write Brain. Here’s the Facebook event link. The event starts at 6:30 and runs until around 8:30. The address of the Write Brain is 4980 Farthing Drive, Colorado Springs, CO 80906.

Here’s the run-down of the event:

This Write Brain will cover important aspects of computer security as it relates to writers. Learn how to protect your data, files, work, and (in some cases) livelihood from being lost to the great bit bucket in the sky. The session will also include information on how to write computer security in a plausible manner from the point of view of the defenders that protect data and the intruders who wish to steal or destroy data.

Here’s the short bio I put together for this event, since it calls out my areas of expertise on the subject matter:

J.T. may as well have grown up with a computer embedded in his brain. He started programming in 1980 at the tender age of seven, and by the time the early 1990s rolled around he was already on the fledgling networks which would become synonymous with the thing we call the Internet. J.T. very quickly learned that, like in dim alleyways, there are some very malicious people out there. He started delving into the world of computer security at this time and has gone on to earn his master’s degree in information assurance and has been a Certified Ethical Hacker since 2009. He’s worked for a variety of tech companies in a security role, and his primary focus in day-to-day life is web security. J.T. is a also a fantasy writer and is the president of the Colorado Springs Fiction Writers Group.

If you’re planning on going, please visit the Facebook link at the top of the post and let the nice folks at Pikes Peak Writers know you’ll be making it.
