products and how one can integrate both into one environment.
Also, there will be a _technological_ discussion of open source

Why would some prefer commercial software and others open source,

Who we are
The Security Forum, hosted by the Tel Aviv University, started when a
few of us talked about there being an (almost) complete lack of
professional and social events on security in Israel which are not
completely commercial and about "sticking products down out throats".
We decided to do instead of complain, and here we are.
In previous meetings we had over a hundred arrivals, varying from
soldiers and students, through programmers and government CSO's, all the
way to CEO's and CTO's of different companies. Some have been part of
our community since the 70's and some are just people who are interested
in the subject.
Have a good week,
Full-Disclosure - We believe in it.
