ISSA-COS Fellow Members,
As you “Beware of the Ides of March,” don’t miss out on all the good things such as… St. Patrick’s Day, Corned Beef and Cabbage, Green Beer, National Pi Day, and College Basketball… lots of college basketball! For ISSA-COS, March is a special month for other reasons. March is the month we celebrate our first conference of the year. It is also the month we break from normal monthly programming and host or participate in special events. Finally, it is the month we regroup and recharge before the 2nd quarter starts.
Looking back at February, we enjoyed dinner and lunch presentations from Mr. William “Bill” Vivian, a Cybersecurity Leadership Coach and Founder of Freestone Solutions Group, LLC. Bill’s presentation was entitled “How Engaged Employees Secure a Network” and it was very well received by those who attended. There were lots of questions, discussions, and sharing of professional experiences among the attendees. At our Mini Seminar, Mr. Justin Whitehead, CEO of Digital Silence, provide us with a double feature presentation entitled “Network Scanning and Exploits.” Here too, attendees shared lots of tips and techniques while learning and practicing on various tools. The Saturday Mini Seminar also marked our second event held at Pikes Peak Community College – Rampart Range. If you attended the January Mini Seminar, you likely witnessed us experiencing many challenges. Fortunately, we worked out a lot of kinks and February was a much better experience. Apart from our scheduled presentations, our Board of Directors (BoD) remained active reviewing new opportunities for members of our chapter and our community to engage in meaningful events in the months to come. We are excited about all that is in store for the rest of the year and hope many of you will find time to participate.....MORE
