Be A Speaker
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.
Be A Volunteer
ISSA is a volunteer based organization and it thrives on having a large pool of volunteers to help get chapter business done. Volunteering not only helps the chapter but helps volunteers build new contacts, build new skills, and may earn CPE credits. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please review the volunteer opportunities and use the form at the bottom of this page to submit your information.
Our members are what drive our organization. The membership committee is tasked with reaching out to new members to welcome them to chapter, speaking with current members to learn how to best meet their needs, and to reach out to expiring or expired members to encourage them to continue their membership. If you are a people person (or want an excuse to get better skills in this area), this is perfect for you.
Programs are how we deliver our educational content to our members and guests. The program committee is charged with helping to recruit speakers, find venues for events, and managing the operational aspects of running our programs. Members of the program committee should be able to regularly attend ISSA Denver Chapter programs in Denver, DTC, Boulder, or multiple locations.
Networking with peers is one the great benefits of being an ISSA member. The social committee organizes happy hours, mixers, and other social events. These events are usually held in the evening but creative committee members may want to stage breakfasts, nights out, or weekend events. If you are a social person or like planning social events, this committee is for you. Committee members should be able to regularly attend ISSA Denver Chapter social events in Denver, DTC, Boulder, or other locations of social events.
Educational Outreach Committee
Interfacing with students is a strategic goal of ISSA. Educational Outreach Committee members are the interface to local educational institutions and their students. There are several institutions that are partners with the ISSA Denver Chapter but committee members will be reaching out to many high school, undergraduate, and graduate level programs. If you are interested in education and helping the next generation of security professionals, then the Educational Outreach Committee is for you.
Mentoring Program Committee
The Denver ISSA Chapter is excited to announce the launch of a new mentorship program! The program is designed to formalize relationships between more senior professional individuals in the chapter (Mentors) and security professionals seeking to learn from these people to gain skills or further their career (Mentees). Since 2016 is the pilot year for this program for our chapter we need your participation to make it successful! Click Here for more information.
