NEbraska-CERT is doing a nighttime event on Wednesday August 21st (our normal night)...I know Jeff has gone to their Breakfast or Lunch meetings as have I.  Details are below....

Thoughts on doing our August meeting on the 28th?

Joe Gulizia

Hi Everyone,

For August we are doing a NIGHTTIME CSF.  If this goes over well
we might start doing one or two of these a year.  This was one of
the most requested items in our 2013 Survey.  We are very fortunate
that TD Ameritrade is going to let us use their facilities for it.

Couple of things

#1.     TD Ameritrade is a secured facility.  If you're not on the
        RSVP list we won't be able to get you into the facility.  So
        we need all people to RSVP for this event.  I need to have
        the list in Tuesday morning.

#2.     This is in the "Big Green" building both in color and eco-impact.
        We'll need to park in the North parking lot and go through
        the main doors.  There'll be a security guard who'll take
        down your name get you a visitor badge and escort you to
        the room.

#3.     We're going to be ordering Pizza.  A LOT of Pizza.  If anybody
        has any particular type they like (Pepperoni, Meat, Chicken,
        Veggie, etc) please let me know.  We'll also be ordering Soda
        so please let us know if you have a preference there as well.
        Otherwise it will be a mix of cola, diet cola, green stuff, and

#4.     If there is a very good pizza place by the office that does deliveries
        plese let me know and we'll see if we can get pizza from there.
        Otherwise it will be one of the franchises.

Hope to see you there,

  TOPIC:  Taking Control of Permissions on your Android Phone
  BY:     Aaron Grothe
  WHO:    All Nebraska/Iowa Information Security Professionals
  WHEN:   Wednesday - August 21, 7:00 pm - 8:30 am
  WHERE:  TD Ameritrade Headquarters
          200 S. 108th Ave. Omaha, NE (Big Green Building)
  WHY:    To share information with like-minded professionals
          and to get some pizza :-)
  HOW:    Please RSVP to csfrsvp at nebraskacert.org and provide
          your name, company, phone and email address
          by Close Of Business Monday, 19 August.

  DESCRIPTION:  With recent apps like Jayz's Magna Carte and other
                apps such as the Obama and Romney campaign apps along
                with even regular programs such as Mozilla's Firefox
                constantly asking for more and more permissions on
                people's phones.

                It has started to become a war of escalation or
                attrition on privileges.  This talk will cover
                several steps to take with android phones: being more
                aware of the permissions being asked for, taking
                control by denying permissions, and also giving apps
                false or random information to send back to their

If those of you who have access to lists of interested individuals
would pass this message along, it would be appreciated!

We look forward to seeing you at the meeting.
