AmSec: The Amherst Security Meetup

I have stopped maintaining this page.

General Information

 What: Monthly meet up of security minded individuals with the purpose of having open 
       discussion about security related topics. Typically, we will have general theme for an
       evening to help spur some shared thought. Periodically someone might wish to informally
       present some work, or new work that is not yet acted on but just thinking about...
       this is encouraged and supported, but by no means required for this meet up. This is
       intended to be very informal and relaxed :-)
 When: 2nd Wednesday of the Month, 5PM or so..
Where: Amherst Brewing Company, Amherst, MA, USA 
  Why: Similar meetings occur in Boston, but that's a hike from Amherst. Further, with
       the individuals in the Amherst area, it is worth the while to take time for us to share
       knowledge and discuss new ideas. We may all work in different sub-fields of Security,
       but we all have a similar mindset.
