The Colorado Springs Chapter of the ISSA is committed to the professional development of our members and the local Information Systems Security community. We offer several opportunities each year for continuing education to help you advance in your careers. Check this page often and watch for class announcements at chapter meetings, the chapter newsletter, and in the events calendar on this website.

Colorado Springs ISSA Chapter Continuing Education


Free Mini-Seminars for CPE/CEUs:

These Mini-Seminars are designed to provide members an opportunity to learn something new, and earn a few CPE/CEUs, at no cost.  Mini-seminars provide continuing education, professional collaboration, and career broadening for members.  They’re also a great opportunity for members to share their knowledge and experience with other members of the Chapter, and gain experience as a speaker, by volunteering to present a topic.  Mini-seminars are generally held on a Saturday, from 9am – noon. 

Our first Mini-seminar for 2017 will be held on February 25th

Cybersecurity Career Progression

– Presented by Art Cooper

Additional details will be provided through the this website, e-mails, and chapter meetings.   

If you have any questions, or would like to present a topic at a future Mini-Seminar, contact our Training Team leads at: Training
