In 2002 Gary and Glenn decided to create an all-volunteer security conference for professionals right in their own backyard to eliminate the time and costs of travelling to out-of-state conferences. They formed the Information Security Summit (ISS) and 150 professional attended the first fall ISS in 2002 on the campus of Tri-C East.
