What is Security Social?
Answer: It is The Phoenix Metro (4.8 Million People) Social Group for Professionals in the physical and cyber security space. It empowers members by hosting events at quality venues that:
- Grow your career thru new relationships.
- Embrace the exchange of new ideas and technology.
- Host and Curate Security Workshops with Relevant Current Topics
- Gives members a great social outlet to decompress and enjoy.
Simply said: by having fun at these events, you will consistently encounter new individuals, offering you the greatest potential to enhance your career. This is due to the fact that you establish new alliances with fellow professionals who possess skillsets and connections that can be mutually beneficial.
Why In-Person Events Matter
Answer: Face to Face human connections produce results not possible thru technology. Virtual meetings are fantastic tools but there will never be a replacement to shaking hands, getting ‘that gut feeling’ or a friendly embrace that only comes with in person connections.
We are Phoenix Locals
Hot Summers and Mild Winters in the Valley of the Sun
We, as Phoenix locals, are fostering a dynamic security community. Within this community, we facilitate the exchange and exploration of topics that hold significance to our members, with the aim of empowering everyone.
Here, our members have the opportunity to connect with each other in a traditional, face-to-face manner as opposed to the online anything.
The Reasons for Membership
Members are actively making an effort to improve their skills, furthering their careers and building their network of people. Privacy or anonymity concerns? Read here.
Our members expect to engage with:
- Others employed in the security space.
- Individuals with similar goals.
- Access to current and relevant education thru workshops.
Members, in general, want to network outside the confines of the office environment. They simply enjoy a relaxed happy hour gathering at a nearby, trendy venue, conveniently situated between home and work. These events involve certain expenses, and membership dues contribute to covering these costs.
The detailed blend of workshops provides a unique learning opportunity, bringing in an environment of knowledge exchange and interaction amongst like-minded professionals. Here, anyone can learn the basics, and veterans can deepen their understanding of advanced concepts, helping in forming a cohesive network of individuals who are passionate about security.
We have one goal: to contribute our time and support, promoting the success of others through local networking, harnessing the power of collaboration, and shared enthusiasm amongst our members.
Both Jim and Nick are Business Consultants by day.
