CbusSec follows the CitySec model of meetups for Columbus, Ohio.

CitySec is an unaffiliated collection of informal meetups for like-minded security professionals. CitySec groups meet to discuss topics of interest in a non-work, non-vendor setting; preferably someplace with food, drink, and wifi.

CitySec meetups are like any other professional society meeting, except:

  • There’s no professional society
  • There’s no membership
  • There are no dues
  • There’s no cover charge
  • There’s no corporate sponsorship
  • There are no vendor pitches
  • There’s no requirement to RSVP
  • There’s no fixed agenda
  • They’re publicly announced and open to all
