Pittsburgh area information technology and security organizations are working together to increase awareness, collaboration and knowledge among the local information security community. Pittsburgh security groups and partners hosting the symposium include InfraGard Pittsburgh, ISSA, and OWASP. ATAP, ISACA, ISC2, RMU’s Top Secret Colonials, Steel City InfoSec and others are also providing local support for this event.
TRISS 2018, in its third year, is a one-day three-track information security symposium. TRISS 2017 was a huge success with over 330 attendees and 19 sponsors. Our goal is 600 attendees this year as we were turning away attendees in 2017. This symposium separates the speakers and sponsorships to ensure all speakers have an equal chance of being selected.
TRISS 2017 attracted titles such as CIO, CISO, CTO, Director of Information Security, Manager of IT, Security/Data/Network Analyst, Owner and President from some of the largest companies in Pittsburgh such as U.S. Steel, PNC, PPG, Wesco , Dick’s Sporting Goods, UPMC, Dollar Bank, Bayer, Highmark, Giant Eagle, Federated, Mylan and Wabtec. We expect to have a similar audience in 2018.
TRISS 2018 is expected to be bigger and better than last year as we work to inform and to secure our community.
