GrrCon 2016 recap

The board of (ISC)² West Michigan Chapter were very happy to again receive the support of the GrrCon community. All attendees received a (ISC)² flyer in their conference bags and the fine folks at GrrCon were nice enough to donate booth space to the Chapter on the exhibition floor.  We were glad to be able to meet so many of you.


We’re looking forward to welcoming all of the new members and hope to see you at a meeting soon. Once again we’re all lucky to have such an awesome infosec con right in our backyard. Looking forward to GrrCon 2016 already!
