Each week, we’ll highlight a major city in the US and cover the places and events you can go to in that area to get your security information fix. This post is part of the information security communities.

Touted as America’s Most Interesting City, New Orleans has a vibrant and easy-going culture that not even Hurricane Katrina has dampened. Its mix of cultures makes it an ideal place for security professionals to relax and mingle. Here are some of the local professional groups you can see in the city.

There is also a local meeting in the area you can go to.

A hackerspace is also available to those who like to do something beyond typing code.

If we missed anything or you want your group to be added to the list, feel free to comment below.
