The ISSA Denver Chapter has monthly chapter meetings, a conference, and several full-day trainings each year. Every one of those events needs at least one speaker to present on a vendor-neutral topic. Our chapter members and event attendees are diverse so we are looking for topics in many areas including Information Security, Information Risk Management, IT Auditing, and other related topics. The content could focus on a technical, management, executive, or a combined level audience. Monthly chapter meeting presentations should be between 60 and 90 minutes, conference sessions should be 60 minutes, and full-day trainings should have 6 to 8 hours of content.
If you are interested in speaking, please fill out this form.
