SecDSM, 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 beer/drinks/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 Des Moines 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.

Schedule

We meet monthly, on the 2nd Thursday starting at 6pm at Speed Lyceum Center at Grandview University in Des Moines.

ProCircular Staff Cyber Escape Room Training 6:30 PM

ProCircular’s cyber escape room reinforces positive security behavior, encourages collaboration to identify threats, and ensures a memorable experience. The scenario - a hacker is inside of your network, and only your employees can protect the business by working together. A briefcase with a series of clues has been left behind, and several different sets of skills are necessary to identify the threat and determine what data he was able to access. Participants will learn about phishing, data classification, password complexity, physical security, and even a little bit of cryptography.
