New Name – Southwest Cybersec Forum

After many years operating as the Southwest Security Professionals Forum, we are changing our name to Southwest CyberSec Forum (SWCSF).

Over the years we have had comments from folks saying they thought that our forum was for professionals only, or that it was a physical security forum. Neither of which, as you may know, is true.  As our focus is primarily related to Cyber and our outreach extends to professionals, students, teachers, government decision makers and other Security groups, the name change seemed apt and overdue.

There are no membership fees, our forum is open to anyone interested in all aspects of security, both cyber and physical. Looking forward to seeing you at the forum!
