ColaSec is a monthly meeting for anyone interested in Information Security founded on the CitySec meetup methodology:

  • No professional society

  • No cover charge

  • No vendor pitches

  • No requirement to RSVP

At every meeting, our members provide refreshments (including beer!) and an opportunity to meet and discuss security news and topics, learn about tools and platforms, and meet peers in the industry. 

All meetings are housed at the USC/Columbia Technology Incubator and are open to all!  


To bring information security professionals in Columbia to share ideas, make professional connections, and collaborate on challenges within the industry.


People from all security disciplines and skill levels will be in attendance.  All are welcome to come share ideas, insights, and of course beer.
