About Us

By Security Professionals for Security Professionals


ChiBrrCon is a privately funded, not-for-profit, charitable organization established for information security and technology focused individuals. Building on years of hosting in-house conferences to help address tight corporate training budgets, ChiBrrCon was founded by corporate information security leaders and sponsored by their respective organizations in 2020. 

The mission and vision of ChiBrrCon are the same as the ones our founders set with their own in-house programs; to provide attendees with high quality training, an opportunity to present to a safe audience, and an opportunity to meet peers with like interests. 

ChiBrrCon is hosted and taught by information security and technology professionals from the Chicagoland Area with special guest speakers from around the world.

In 2022 we broadened our mission to meet the needs of a broader set of audience members and introduced learner tracks for individuals in the beginning of their security and technology careers, and individuals seeking the next step in their development to become a Chief Information Security Officer.   We also broadened our private list of invitees to include organizations seeking to address diversity gaps in our profession.

Our Mission

To provide technologically minded individuals:

  • A rich, affordable learning experience
  • A safe, inclusive, diverse, harassment-free zone to expand and share knowledge and experiences with peers
  • An opportunity to meet, socialize, and create lasting relationships with others who share similar interests

Our Vision

Develop and Inspire the next generation of cyber professionals through knowledge transfer, diversity & inclusion, and community collaboration.
