IndySec Formed

I have decided to create IndySec.
IndySec will be an informal, monthly gathering to talk about operational information security and systems administration.

No officers.
No dues.
No minutes.
Everyone is invited. Nerds preferred.
Anyone may present.

I was inspired to create the group after reading about Richard Bejtlich's NoVA Sec and Matasano's ChiSec. If one has ever heard the phrase "Standing on the shoulders of giants", this certainly applies.

From Bernard of Chartres - (wiki) :
We are like dwarfs on the shoulders of giants, so that we can see more than they, and things at a greater distance, not by virtue of any sharpness on sight on our part, or any physical distinction, but because we are carried high and raised up by their giant size
More information to come ...


  1. Great idea! Pass over the details or let me know if you need help organizing the events.

  2. Ditto. I'd love to be a part.

  3. Landon, I may take you up on that offer. Email me when you have a chance.

    Ed, glad you found us!
