ISSW was born from the local hacker community collectively wanting to have an information security conference in Austin. Our goal was to create a venue to host the most informative, original, and emerging topics in information security.
ISSW has become a place where anyone is welcome to learn, interact, mingle, and be a part of the community.
Over the years, ISSW has grown and hosted many diverse lectures and events, while the spirit of community and learning continues to be the paragon of our ethos. Team up with and face-off against your fellow attendees to compete in our Capture the Flag contest, try your skills in the Project Mayhem scavenger hunt, or take part in our turbo-talks, where anyone can contribute to the collaborative learning of the community.
