In this get together episode of the Exploring Information Security podcast, I discuss "How to start a successful CitySec meetup" with BurbSec organizer Johnny Xmas.
Johnny, (@J0hnnyXm4s), helps organize four monthly meetups in the Chicago area called BurbSec. Starting a CitySec is a unique challenge but one that is easily doable. CitySec's provide an opportunity for security professionals and enthusiasts to get together to network, learn, and improve their security mindset. Johnny will be presenting this topic as a talk at BSides Nashville April 16, 2016.
In this episode we discuss:
- The origin story of BurbSec in Chicago
- The people who attend CitySec meetups
