Si1isec – the Silicon Valley Information
What & Why:
Si1isec is one of the many CitySec
gatherings around the world, One of the many unaffiliated collection of
informal meetups for like-minded information security professionals. These
gatherings are for meeting up and discussing topics of interest in a
non-work, non-vendor setting; preferably while enjoying food and beverages
(sometimes adult beverages).
security professionals and hackers
Si1isec typically gathers on the first Thursday of the month, starting
around 7 PM (though some show up earlier, and some later). Note that due to
other large gatherings in other cities during the first week of a month
(e.g, 'hacker summer camp' (DEFCON/Black
Hat) or RSA Conference)
most of us will not be in attendance.
July 18 (Moved from the usual 1st Thursday which is Independence Day)
The next Si1isec will be held at:
Metro City Restaurant & Bar
151 S Murphy Ave
Sunnyvale, CA 94086
Currently we meet at Metro City Restaurant & Bar; at the tables on the
sidewalk in front of the venue on Murphy street. Look for the folks with the
blinking badges and other electronics.
Note that if the venue is unable to accommodate us (which happens due to
sports ball games or wait staff shortages), we will move to other venues on
Murphy Street (such as Hardy's Bavaria).
At some point we may head to other venues on Murphy street for other
food/libations. Follow the mailing
list and @si1isec Twitter account for details.
There is street parking on Murphy, and multiple parking lots nearby. Note
the Caltrain parking garage located at the north end of Murphy Street is
free after 6 PM and most likely your easiest parking option.
Sunnyvale station, with many of the limited and baby bullets stoping
at the Sunnyvale station
Driving: easy access from both Central Expressway and 101 for their
respective Mathilda exits, head towards Sunnyvale Town Center and the
Sunnyvale heritage district, with the venue on the east end of Murphy
