Giving Back and Growing Simultaneously

Thank you to those who attended last week’s regional Intelligence Workshop at Walgreens University! Being a part of Walgreens Boots Alliance allows our team access to a wide array of resources that we are happy to share with the RH-ISAC member community.

It was awesome to host more than 20 practitioners in retail and hospitality cyber security for this interactive workshop.  We had a great line-up of presenters but also had time to engage in small collaborative group sessions. From an analysis on phishing techniques to approaches to third-party risk management, we shared and adopted new techniques, making us stronger together. Each of us walked away with several ideas that we can immediately apply to our operations and we made new connections with other practitioners we can trust and call on.

As one participant shared on the RH-ISAC Slack Channel, “just wanted to say again how great the threat intel workshop at Walgreens University was! looking forward to using this resource a lot more.”

You can find out how great the regional Intelligence Workshops are for yourself. The last one of the 2019 series will be held May 9th at PVH Corp. headquarters in NYC.
