STLSec is go.
STLSec is an attempt to get something going in Saint Louis similar to CHISec and of course CitySec in general. The CitySec meetups are an informal meetup of like-minded security professionals to dicuss topics of interest in a non-work, non-vendor setting. There's no president. No bylaws. No meeting minutes. No Powerpoints. No BS.
We meet the SECOND WEDNESDAY of every month, at The Fox and Hounds pub in Clayton, inside the Cheshire Lodge.
It's relatively quiet, is a piece of STL history, and is convenient for central folks while equally inconvenient for folks in Illinois or West County. You can find it on Google Maps here.
Come any time between 6:30 and (roughly) 1:00AM or so. They have food, and of course, beer and other beverages.
The rules are pretty simple:
Drinking and food (not necessarily in that order) are involved.
No sales pitches please, but bar tabs on expense accounts welcome!

require encourage the speaker to buy a round of shots.
We all know about ISACA, ISSA, OWASP, and the SLUUG. The intent here is to provide a more casual, "meetup" environment for folks passionate about security to hang out and talk shop, on a monthly basis.
