The Information Systems Security Association (ISSA) is a not-for-profit international organization of information security professionals and practitioners. It provides education forums, publications, and peer interaction opportunities that enhance the knowledge, skill and professional growth of its members. Visit ISSA's Web site for more information about the international ISSA organization.
The Denver Chapter of the ISSA organizes a number of security events, including:
- Monthly meetings during which we typically invite speakers to address different security issues. The meetings are held in three locations (Denver Tech Center, Downtown Denver, and Boulder). The topics vary from non-technical (leadership, compliance, metrics, security awareness) to highly technical (deep dives on specific technologies). The meetings also provide great networking opportunities with other Information Security professionals in the Denver area.
- Full day training events are held regularly to give a deep-dive training to chapter members. These events are generally limited in attendance (30-50) and free to members.
- Industry vertical events are half day sessions focused on bringing together members of a specific industry vertical (healthcare, financial services, government) to discuss their security needs.
- Happy hours are held intermittently to give members the opportunity to socialize. These events have no formal agenda, other than meeting and networking with other security professionals. These events are held throughout the metro area.
The Denver chapter holds meetings year round, with our annual meeting and board election in June. If you would like to contact a board member or any of the other chapter members involved in the leadership and coordination of chapter services, please see our Board Members page use our Contact Form.
