Dec 2022 – Social Event At Big Lick Brewing

Our December RISE meeting will be a social event December 8th at Big Lick Brewery in downtown Roanoke starting at 5:30pm.   We want to take this opportunity to kick back, talk and share ideas about upcoming events and provide feedback on past events.  RISE can’t happen without you, so we look forward to hearing your thoughts and ideas as we get ready for 2023.   We have a table reserved at Big Lick starting at 5:15pm with a seat ready for you so don’t miss out. 

Note: RISE will not be providing beverages or food for this event (I mean common man, I can’t pay for everyone), but I am currently searching for a sponsor that might be able to assist so stay tuned. 

We look forward to seeing you all in person on Dec. 8th at Big Lick Brewery

BSides Roanoke 2023

The Roanoke Information Security Exchange and Noke Codes in partnership with Virginia Western Community College are happy to announce the second annual Security BSides event in the Roanoke region! So what is BSides? BSides is a community-driven event for and by information security community members. The goal is to expand the spectrum of conversation beyond the traditional confines of space and time. It creates opportunities for individuals to both present and participate in an intimate atmosphere that encourages collaboration. It is an intense event with discussions, demos, and interaction from participants. It is where conversations about the next-big-thing are happening. Thousands of people have attended and written about their experience at BSides events.
