Great Lakes Computer at GrrCON 2013

Kicking off on Thursday, September 12th and lasting through Friday, the 13th, GrrCON is an information security conference held in the Midwest – specifically, our hometown of Grand Rapids, Michigan.  We were a Silver sponsor of GrrCON this year, our first year ever attending the show. From our booth in the Solutions Arena, we got to experience GrrCON first-hand.


Offering four tracks, Wasp, Mendax, Whistler and Phineas Freak, GrrCON offered sessions ranging from “Establishing a Vulnerability and Threat Management Program” to “The Droid Exploitation Saga, All Over Again!” and more. From our Juniper Networks partnership, security expert Keir Asher gave a presentation on our behalf entitled, “Outside the Box: A Discussion around Alternative Security Approaches.”

From our booth, we got a chance to speak with security professionals that were both local and out-of-state. These professionals were from a variety of industries, such as Medical, Legal, Finance, Insurance – you name it. GrrCON attracted the American melting pot (or stir fry, to use a more current phrasing) of individuals and we are appreciative for the chance to meet them all!

So since it was our first year, the question was, will we back next year? And the answer is a resounding yes. GrrCON, be ready to see GLC as a sponsor again in 2014. We can’t wait!
