Detroit Linux User Group

It’s my pleasure to announce the second edition of D-LUG!

We have a special guest speaker this time around. His name is Mark Stanislav (

“Mark Stanislav is a Senior Consultant at NetWorks Group, focused on
operational automation and information security. With a career
spanning a decade, Mark has worked within small business, academia,
start-up, and corporate environments primarily focused on Linux
architecture, information security, and web application development.
Mark holds a Bachelor’s degree in Networking & IT Administration and a
Master’s in Technology Studies focused on Information Assurance, both
from Eastern Michigan University. Mark also holds his CISSP,
Security+, Linux+, and CCSK certifications.”

His presentation is titled “Core Linux Security: 0-Day Isn’t Everything.” Check out the following description:

“When discussion on hardening Linux systems occurs, usually someone
will swear by a single feature or application to ‘save the day’. In
reality, a mesh of complimentary technologies, most of which are
built-in or easily installable on a Linux box, is the bestway to go.
Defense in depth is more than marketing lingo, it’s a way of life for
actual information security. Come see some of the technologies you may
have ignored, never knew existed, or just weren’t fully leveraging in
some helpful ways to add layered security to your next Linux

We’ll also have a Raspberry Pi or two on hand that we can play around with.

Free coffee and pizza!

Thursday July 12th at the M@dison building. 7PM to 8:30PM EST.
