About a month ago Ryan Stillians came to me with an idea to do a local meet up for information security professionals in the area. Since I had sorta had this same idea but never got it off the ground we decided to work together to get something off the ground. This is designed to be a monthly meet up group with some additional things if we have a topic that we really want to dig into. Most meetings will take place between Iowa City and Cedar Rapids and hopefully back and forth. The desire is to create a community in the area where info sec professionals can get to know others. Hopefully this will keep the good momentum we saw from the first meeting.
First meeting was great, second meeting is tonight (12/9) where we are planning some member introductions.
