SecIC, a monthly meetup providing the opportunity to network with other InfoSec pros and listen to short tech talks presented by your fellow members (or give a presentation yourself!) while enjoying some drinks and food. No sales pitches. The idea is to provide you actionable knowledge for you to take back to your $dayjob while building a top tier InfoSec community in the Iowa City area. If you have the desire to learn about real world InfoSec scenarios - get out of your comfort zone - and join us in a relaxed vendor neutral environment. No registration is required.
