CIScon is an annual conference hosted by Computer Institute of the Rockies (CIR), which specializes in security awareness and training. The conference began because CIR director Brad Smith wanted to provide affordable technology and security training for small organizations who don't have a lot of money to spend on their IT. Over the years and at the request of attendees, the event has grown from a one-day conference to a four-day conference that includes a day of break-out sessions, a one-day conference pass option, and optional in-depth post sessions. Originally called the Montana Technology and Security Symposium, we changed the name to reflect the growing attendance by people from surrounding states and let them know that we recognize this as a regional event.
