In the spirit of the Holiday Season, Coalfire has made a significant contribution to in the form of free Penetration Testing services.  GivingFirst is a Denver-based community foundation whose mission is “to improve quality of life by increasing community generosity and involvement.” 

I would like to first thank Mark Dimodica for bringing this important initiative to our attention through his work with FirstBank (also a client and sponsor of GivingFirst).  Second, I would like to thank the Coalfire Labs team in providing its customary excellent services to this valued organization in our community.

Today, Tuesday December 6 for 24 hours starting at 12am, is “Colorado Gives Day”.   Hundreds of Colorado non-profits participate, making it easy for you to donate to your favorite charity.  On behalf of the management team of Coalfire, I encourage you to donate to your favorite charity today through the Colorado Gives Day website.  Simply go to this site: to find your favorite charity.

Last year, $8.7 million was donated on one day to Colorado Charities.  Let’s help them make it another successful day!  Plus, you can trust your information is safe!
