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.

The Sooner State is known for its violent tornadoes, American Indian culture and cowboy heritage. Oklahoma City is also home to many an infosec professional. Here are a few local professional groups in the area.

If that’s not your thing, maybe you want some old-fashioned local meetings to mingle in.

  • DC405 – Established in 2007, this DefCon group meets every third Friday at the OKCCoCo. Access past presentations and forums here.
  • OKC2600 – The local chapter of Oklahoma City’s 2600 is a forum. Meetings are every first Friday at Cafe Bella and these are open to everyone. To prove how wacky they are, last meeting’s agenda was about piglets.

Sadly, there seems to be no hackerspaces but there is one coworking space

  • OKCCoCo – This is a coworking collaborative in Midtown. It’s open for both big conferences and small meetings. Many local professional go here to meet (like DC405).

No security events here but if we missed anything, feel free to sound off in the comments below.
