Burbsec is a collection informal meetups in the Chicagoland area frequented by Information Security enthusiasts, engineers, hackers, geeks, students and professionals. Expect a night of great networking and lubricated conversations!  We have NO DUES, NO PRESENTATIONS, NO PUSHY SALESPEOPLE!

• Burbsec Prime: Typically the first Thursday of the month at Level 257 in Woodfield Mall, Schaumburg. A selection of classic and current video games compliments a great food and drink selection. Find the BurbSec Prime group over by the giant PAC-MAN game. 

• Burbsec North: Typically the second Thursday of the month at Grandpa's Place in Glenview. Burbsec North offers calm and welcoming gathering in a comforting, intimate space, with great bar food and drinks.

• Burbsec West: Typically the third Thursday of the month at Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery in Warrenville. It also has stuff, check it out.

• Burbsec East: The last Thursday of the month. Logan Bar & Grill is a classy, clean establishment with attentive waitstaff, huge beer & whiskey list, and excellent food. We have our own section in the back, and the music & ambient volumes never get annoyingly loud. There is a huge patio that is covered during rain and heated in the winter.  Don’t worry about being late, people will begin to roll in after work around 6pm and we go until we're done (generally 4 - 5 hours or so as people come and go).  We often have a later group that rolls in post-dinner around 8 or 9.
