RainSec - PDX Information Security Meetup
Lucky Lab Brew Pub

RainSec is an informal group of like-minded security professionals who meet to network and discuss topics of interest in a non-work, non-vendor setting.

While our target audience is experienced information security professionals, this is a public event open to any interested parties. If you have a friend or colleague who might benefit, please pass an invite along.

Follow @PDXRainSec on Twitter for last minute updates.

Because the Delta variant of COVID-19 still presents significant risk to some members of our community, we ask that you observe the following and make your own risk assessment decision regarding your attendance:

  • Masks are required to be worn over the mouth and nose while in the venue, except when eating or drinking.
  • If outdoor seating is available and weather permits, we will be outside.
  • If you are feeling sick, stay home!
  • If you've had a recent COVID exposure, stay home!
  • If you are not vaccinated, stay home!
  • If you are otherwise considered high risk for COVID, please stay home until you feel it is safe to gather in large groups (20-40 people). We don't want to be the cause of anyone's illness or death.

We miss all of you, and we look forward to seeing you as soon as it is safe for you to attend.

You can also find us on Meetup.com and Google Groups.

Join PDXWIT for a small, informal-yet-focused virtual discussion where we share our experiences with diversity in the workplace. If you identify as being historically and systematically underrepresented* in tech, this opportunity is for you.

Our goal is to create a dedicated space for an honest and impactful conversation exploring our shared experiences as individuals in the industry. We are asking folks to apply to attend this event (link below) so we can ensure the group has representation across the continuum.

Applications are due by Monday, 10/18/21 5 p.m. ET, and the 10 invitees will be notified by Friday, 10/22/21. A zoom link will be shared with attendees ahead of the event. Attendees will be provided with a gift certificate so they can order dinner for themselves in the spirit of our pre-pandemic in-person Diversity Dinners.

  • Underrepresented may mean BIPOC, LGBTQ+, or varying physical or cognitive abilities. If you think this sounds like you, please apply!

PDXWIT Happy Hour is back with our November host Opus Interactive!

We’ve lined up two dynamic lightning speakers for this lunch hour event. Amanda Squiemphen-Yazzie, a proud Warm Springs, Navajo, Wasco, and Yakama woman, and local consultant, will touch on land acknowledgments and what they mean to her. Grace Andrews, a technical storyteller with a cross-cultural focus, will weave a tale of tech intersecting with life.

As always, recruiters will share open positions throughout Portland and beyond during our Recruiter Roll Call. Chat with these recruiters and hiring managers in our Virtual Job Seekers Lounge using Slack after the event.

For those of you looking to network with the community, we save the last 15 minutes of each event (12:45 pm - 1 pm PT) for optional on-camera discussion, but you don’t have to wait until then to meet someone new. Get involved in the chat throughout the event as well.

We will have ASL interpretation and closed captioning throughout. Please get in touch with any additional accessibility needs you may have.

You will have the option to provide your address at registration so we can send you something cool ahead of the event in the mail.

Hope to see you there!
