14th Annual Phishapalooza Thursday, January 27, 12:00-5:00pm CST; Crystal Beach, Burnsville, MN

Please join Optiv and our partners for the 14th Annual Minneapolis Phishapalooza benefiting The American Cancer Society!

In 2021 Phishapalooza helped raise over $60,000 for The American Cancer Society – an amazing contribution from an amazing community! In 2022 we are setting our goal at $100,000 and need all help more than ever. With your help we are determined to smash last year’s contribution!

In addition to the ice-fishing tourney, we have carefully curated food, beverage, and music under outdoor pavilions (not tents). Weather has not deterred your participation in the past, but if it’s really cold or windy please consider extra bundling.

Phishapalooza is a great opportunity to help The American Cancer Society and to have fun, but it’s also a great professional networking event. Feedback every year includes big praise for enabling the Twin Cities cyber security community to come together and practice our shared principles especially around philanthropy. We hope you can make 2022 just as successful as years past!

COVID Precautions We are Taking

Due to Covid, Phishapalooza will be very different this year. Tons of effort and resources are invested to ensure the event is safe for everyone. We will safely exceed all federal, state, county, and personal precautions for this event which includes careful social distance, mask, and sanitation preps. But, the final judge is you - if anything makes you uncomfortable, please back-off or leave if necessary - no harm no foul.
