The first Three Rivers Information Security Symposium will be held on Friday, October 28, 2016.  In conjunction with Cyber Security Awareness Month, TRISS will be held at Robert Morris University from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm. There will be two keynote speakers and sessions on a variety of information security topics throughout the day.  The list of speakers and topics will be announced following a Call for Presentations.  Breakfast and lunch will be provided with attendees limited to 160.   We received twenty-one submissions. Thank you to everyone for submitting, unfortunately there is not enough time to select them all.  From those, two keynotes and five presentations were selected.  One presentation slot was added by adding thirty-minutes to the symposiums.  The tentative schedule:
