SIEM Market Redux

Roughly a year and a half ago, Rocky DeStefano and I had a conversation about the SIEM market in which he predicted mass acquisitions. It took longer than he originally guessed, but...

I'll throw another one out there - after more than 2 years of steady speculation of a Splunk IPO, they hired David Conte as CFO fresh from his setting up the sale of IronKey to Imation. Expect Splunk to be acquired in 2012, or at least try really hard.

GrrCON: West Michigan Security Conference

The Grand Rapids chapter of ISSA has announced a new event called GrrCON. It's a 1-day security conference that will be held in Grand Rapids, MI in September 2011. This will be one to keep an eye on over the next month or so as they get the speaker line-up solidified. I expect some cool talks and even a few surprises!
