Mentoring Program

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). 

How do I sign up?

You can find the application and expectations for the program below.  A couple of things to note:

- To be a Mentee you have to be a current Denver ISSA chapter member!  Non-members are encouraged to join in order to take advantage of this great career opportunity.  

- Mentor/Mentee matches are made based on several factors including goals, geographic location and experience. Because we aim to make the best possible matches based on several criteria we cannot guarantee that everyone will be matched.

Why should I become a mentor?

  • Contribute to the professional development of the future workforce;
  • Help build stronger community fabric;
  • Impart the principles of an experienced security professional;
  • Gain a broader view of your own community; and
  • Give something back to the profession!

Why should I become a mentee?

  • Explore the world of work through interaction with professionals in the career of their choice;
  • Gain an experienced practitioner's perspective on applying concepts to real-life situations;
  • Familiarize yourself with success in a corporate environment;
  • Identify long-term professional development goals;
  • Grow as an information security professional; 
  • Gain the capacity to translate values and strategies into productive actions; 
  • Increase career development opportunities.

I’d like some more details on how the program will work and what is expected. Where can I find out more?

We’ve created a document outlining the expectations for Mentors and Mentees which you can find HERE. You can also submit questions to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

We look forward to your participation!

Volunteer

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.

Membership Committee

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 Committee

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.

Social Committee

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).
