Pittsburgh region information technology and security organizations are working together to increase awareness, collaboration and knowledge among the local information security community. Local security groups and partners hosting the symposium include InfraGard Pittsburgh, ISSA, and OWASP. AITP, ISACA, ISC2, RMU’s Top Secret Colonials, and Steel City InfoSec are also providing local support for this event.
Last year’s symposium was a huge success with over 330 attendees and 19 sponsors. We expect over 600 attendees this year and hope you will be interested in sponsoring this event and we know that your sponsorship will assist you in getting your message or product in front of Pittsburgh’s security professionals. We have outlined the sponsorship levels below. Our intention with the levels is to give companies and several options that are both affordable and provide avenues to get in front of our attendees. In our event we have separated the speakers and sponsorships. Although we do not want the speakers to be selling product it can be a great opportunity to highlight your area of expertise on a number of security topics.
Last year’s event 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 this year’s symposium to be bigger and better than last year.
