Announcing the Third Annual Three Rivers Information Security Symposium The Three Rivers Information Security Symposium (TRISS) is focused on increasing awareness, collaboration and knowledge in the Greater Pittsburgh information security community. This year is about growth — larger venue, more presentations and greater attendance. We received 33 submissions to the Call for Presentations. We added a presentation room — three in total. Allowing us to nearly double presentations to 14, six more than 2017. The Monroeville Convention Center – next door to last year’s venue – can accommodate 600 attendees. Registration is still open.
