Firewalls (WAF)"*.

*Call for Presenters*
As mentioned in the last email, we are actively looking for individuals to

Vancouver is a great way to share your knowledge and experience in a
friendly atmosphere.  As you already know, the community is very supportive
and is a great environment for first time presenters and veteran presenters
alike.

this email or reach out to Farshad (farshad.abasi at miraisecurirty.com).

*Sponsor Recognition*
A big thank you to ACL for hosting the event.  Without their help, we
wouldn't have been able to accommodate more individuals for this talk and
help our chapter grow.  Thank you!
