WELCOME TO BURBSEC

CHICAGO'S INFORMATION SECURITY MEETUP NETWORK

About us


Who?

As a sister meet-up to ChiSec, BurbSec has become the Chicago Information Security Meet-Up Network for Info-Sec Professionals, Researchers, Hackers, and all things in-between!

Unlike other meetings, there are no “dues”, nothing to join, and no exploits to present! Don’t worry about being late, people will begin to roll in after-work around 5:30pm and we will finish up whenever people leave (generally 4 - 5 hours or so as people come and go). What to expect? An informal night of great networking and lubricated conversations!

Why?

We're just like you and you will fit right in. We geek out on infosec, memes, beer, and compliance jokes (among other things). Our skill set ranges from novice to expert and includes paper hat making. There will be someone who you can ask tough questions and get answers as well as be asked tough questions and give answers.

Aside from finding like minded people, you will make contacts, friendships, and expand your network of professional connections with genuine people. These are the kind of connections that help you solve that tough problem at work, at home, or in the job market.

Have I mentioned that people come to BurbSec looking to hire and/or recruit?
