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.

Ringed by breathtaking mountains and sitting next to a teeming river, Albuquerque is where you go for sweet escape. In case you are in town, here’s the local professional groups you should know.

To be honest, there isn’t much on the local meetings front.

  • Dorkbot ABQ – These guys haven’t done anything since 2009 but hey, there’s some cool stuff on their site.

It seems there’s not a single medium-sized town or city in the United States that doesn’t have a hackerspace.

  • Quelab – It looks like someone’s house on some quaint neighborhood, but it’s actually a cool place to visit and the members are busy with lots of projects.

Lookie here, a security event!

  • SANS Albuquerque – It’s happening next month and if you’re interested in participating, open the link for the goodies.

There might be a few groups and events we missed. If so, feel free to chime in at the comments.
