The Three Rivers Information Security Symposium is pleased to announce a Call for Conference Papers and Call for Interactive Sessions for the 2017 Three Rivers Information Security Symposium on October 20, 2017, in conjunction with Cyber Security Awareness Month. This is the second of what is planned to be an annual Symposium. This year’s event will be hosted at DoubleTree – Monroeville Convention Center.

The Three Rivers Information Security Symposium is a one-day conference, aimed at increasing awareness, interaction and knowledge in the Greater Pittsburgh information security community. There will be presentations, round-table and hands-on workshops on a variety of information security topics throughout the day.  The intent is to appeal to all levels of security professionals including those working in network and application security, software development, software quality engineers, computer science professionals and students.  All presentations and interactive sessions are NOT to be a sales or product demonstration.  There are many excellent products and services offered by vendors in the security arena, but we are vendor neutral.

Local security groups hosting the symposium include InfraGard Pittsburgh, ISSA and OWASP. We are planning for over 300 attendees this year.
