On the global scale, the number of information security professionals is projected to continuously grow more than 11 percent annually over the next five years, according to The 2013 (ISC)2 Global Information Security Workforce Study. The aim of Phoenix ISSA is to provide you with the education, connections, and experiences to help you succeed.

Started in 2009, this nonprofit workshop hosts public meetings (where all are welcome) every first and third Thursday in Gangplank. HeatSync Labs is Arizona’s first 501(c)3 hackerspace. They are a community workshop that makes workspace, tools, and other resources available to students and hobbyists, artists, engineers and entrepreneurs to build their projects, prototypes, and art. They believe in creating a community of collaboration and learning-by-doing.
This is a free coworking space (at least during weekdays) located in Chandler. Wednesdays are Hacknights for those tinkerers out there. Gangplank is a place for creators. When diverse backgrounds and ideas collide, those moments provide the necessary fuel to innovate. Gangplank provides the infrastructure, both physical and social, for this to happen. They serve as a place for people to explore their creativity, then challenge them to build their ideas into a viable startup – forging a vibrant economy in the process.
