NCI 9th Annual Security Summit and Golf Tournament Highlights

 

Thursday, September 10th 2015 was the day of our Annual Security Summit and Golf Tournament. The day started off sunny and warm – thank goodness because crossed fingers hoping for no rain were starting to get sore- and continued on that way.

Those of you who have known NCI for a while, will most likely know what the Annual Security Summit and Golf Tournament is all about.

Each year we host this event, with the support of our partners, to bring you the latest CyberSecurity updates/trends/best practices.  The morning session is filled with presentations by NCI and its partners, as well as a partner showcase. The afternoon is a rousing round of golf.

 

This year we hosted a Charity Raffle and Beat the Belle competition to raise funds for the TRUE PATRIOT LOVE FOUNDATION. The support and participation was overwhelming. Thank you to all those who participated in the raffle and donated, as well as the partners who donated Raffle Prizes.

We raised $1,290!

NCI will be matching the donations bringing our grand total to $2,580

 

The entire day was a smashing success and we are pleased to bring you some highlights.
