Given our interest in meetups we came across this great wiki page on Reddit that covers a fairly complete list of CitySec events. They note that the list is “unofficial” however since the original domain has long been abandoned and overrun with foreign characters, it’s probably as official as you’ll get. Of course the standard ones around DC, CapSecDC and CharmSec, are there. Most CitySec events are US only however a few international ones exist as well. Next task for us is to probably submit NovaInfosec East and West I guess. From the looks of it, Chicago seems to do this as well.

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 while drinking. CitySec meetups are like any other professional society meeting, except:
- There’s no professional society
- There’s no membership
- There’s no dues
- There’s no cover charge
- There’s no corporate sponsorship
- There’s no vendor pitches
- There’s no requirement to RSVP
- There’s no fixed agenda
- They’re publicly announced and open to all
The purpose of this list is to provide an unofficial, centralized database of CitySec meetups. We make no guarantees regarding the accuracy of this information. Meetings have a habit of dying off for periods of time if there isn’t a strong organizational structure; if this happens in your area, consider taking charge and revitalizing your local meetup.
Are there any other CitySecs out there? Let us know in the comments below. See ya!
