Alamo Drafthouse Village, 2700 W Anderson Ln, Austin, TX 78757

During our two-hour lunch breaks on both days of the conference, InfoSec Southwest holds a completely open forum for lightning and turbo-talks that is not constrained by a speaker selection process, mirroring our wildly successful local AHA! hacker meeting format. This forum is open to anyone attending the conference to attend and/or to speak on any topic they wish in a first-come, first-speak order. As such, we invite everyone to attend and participate. Those who come and speak during the open forum will receive a complimentary drink ticket and speaker badge.

Needing more of a mental break? Come to hecklevision & heckle, comment, and enjoy your favorite hacker flicks with your friends.

The Alamo Drafthouse is an Austin movie-going staple experience, and we’ve taken over one of the theaters at their Village location for our open forum lunches. The Alamo will have their full kitchen and bar open so we hope you’ll consider spending some or all of your lunch break with us at the Alamo.

Leah Figueroa | FERPA: Only Your Grades Are Safe – OSINT in Higher Education

3:00 – 4:00 PM

Pandora’s Soapbox
Up to 60 people will each be given 60 seconds to pitch themselves, their business, their startup, their job posting, or whatever to the masses during Pandora’s Soapbox. You could read your resume or politely list bullet points from a job posting or you can get creative. How much do you want to stand out in the crowd?

Do what you have to do to recruit employees, make a career change, or look for a new business partner, but do it fast because there’s no time between the pitches and we’re not going to stop the next person from jumping on stage to claim their minute in the spotlight.
