In this show me episode of the Exploring Information Security podcast, Dave Chronister managing partner at Parameter Security (@ParameterHacker) and organizer discuss ShowMeCon.
I can't say enough good things about Dave (@bagomojo). Last year was my first opportunity to attendee and speak at ShowMeCon (@ShowMeConSTL). He and the organizers did a tremendous job taking care of the speakers and attendees. There was great content, activities, food, parties, and the venue was top notch. This is one of the most well run and classiest conferences I've had the opportunity to attendee. I am excited to have the opportunity to speak again at the conference.
The conference has a different feel than other security conferences. It has more of a business feel. Which is a nice change of pace. This gives businesses in St. Louis an opportunity to tap into the vast knowledge of infosec community. It gives speakers of the infosec community an opportunity to show businesses how deep the infosec rabbit hole goes. I highly recommend (and often do) this conference to everyone in IT security.
ShowMeCon is June 8 and 9, 2017, at the Ameristar Casino and Resort. Tickets are available until May 15, 2017.
