The NY Information Security Meetup (NYIS) is the largest gathering of its kind, assembling top talent from the New York metropolitan region and beyond to cover the latest developments in IS. Topics include enterprise cyber security, mobile computing, network and endpoint security, and security policy including governance and compliance. Meetings typically consist of a featured speaker, demos by vetted security vendors, panel discussions, hands-on workshops, and the profession's top networking opportunity. IS occupies the front pages of news sites too often and as such firms are embracing new technologies to safeguard sensitive account and IoT system access. No matter your position - we welcome those entering the field! - join us to network and learn from one another. www.nyis.us @NYInfoSecurity (https://twitter.com/NYInfoSecurity)
