Welcome to issue 33 of IT Pro 20/20, distilling the most important themes of the previous month into a simple, easy-to-read package.

For this issue, we’re taking a look at the shady world of cyber security networking, and how professional social media services, and in-person conferences are being exploited by those seeking to sexually harass female members of the community.

A number of anonymous victims have shared their experiences with us in an effort to shed some light on this dark corner of the cyber security community.
