Tri-Ed Roadshow: Worth Going to?

Author: Ethan Ace, Published on Aug 19, 2012

Single day, touring 'roadshows' promise an easy way to learn about new security technology without having to travel far. In the US, one of the most aggressive roadshow operators is Tri-Ed, a national distributor. Since Tri-Ed / Northern has a reputation as a low end provider, we were especially curious to see how sophisticated or advanced the training would be. In this note, we recap the Tri-Ed event we attended.
