What do the LA Dodgers Stadium, the Empire State building and a cave in Kansas have in common?
They’ve all been host to Fuel User Group chapter meetings, where Palo Alto Networks users and security professionals connect locally to share experiences, challenges and strategies for their organization’s cybersecurity.
Fuel User Group currently boasts 105 city and regional chapters in over 30 countries, from London and Tel Aviv to Manila and New York City. Most recently, Fuel User Group leaders in Rio de Janeiro established the first South American chapter, extending Fuel’s reach to six continents. Here are some highlights from recent Fuel Chapter meetings:
- Some of the earliest Fuel chapter meetings were hosted by the Jackson User Group in March and the Minneapolis User Group in May. Presentations included a discussion of advanced threat protection for endpoints and the state of cybersecurity, and the meetings included lunch and an open forum for conversation with like-minded Palo Alto Networks users.
- On May 28th, the Los Angeles chapter launched its first meeting at the LA Dodgers’ Stadium, with special guest Ralph Esquibel. Ralph is the Vice President of Information Technology at the Los Angeles Dodgers and spoke with Fuel members about best practices for securing a large visiting audience, protecting intellectual property and continual efforts to improve upon existing security posture.
- This past week, the Sydney chapter met for the first time at Level 3 for a PAN-OS 7.0 feature discussion and a networking happy hour. This event was the first chapter event in Australia and will be followed this week by another in Melbourne.
These chapter meetings—along with others in Portland, San Diego, Maryland, and around the globe— have received rave reviews from attendees, who’ve enjoyed being able to share their experiences, challenges and strategies and to learn from one another.
