Meet and Learn with the Leading InfoSec Professionals
SecureWV is a security conference held in Charleston, West Virginia. It is about the infoSec community and is small enough that you can talk directly with the speakers, but large enough that you can find attendees with similar interests.

- Hardware Hacking Village
The event’s sponsor SME will be supplying soldering iron stations and a handful of tools and supplies for your hardware hacking pleasure. Learn to solder and create some interesting things.
