We meet on the 2nd Tuesday of every even month. Empire Hacking begins at 6:00pm and talks begin at 6:15pm. Join our Slack and add our NYC Infosec calendar so you’re never caught by surprise.


Talks are short and focused and cover pragmatic security research. When we meet in-person, there are breaks so attendees can socialize over drinks and light food. After, we designate a nearby bar to continue the conversation.
