Our next major events are coming up soon. Our Chapter will once again host the 9th Annual Regional Technology & Cybersecurity Day at Ft Carson on Wednesday, June 6, and at Peterson AFB on Thursday, June 7, 2018. The theme for both events this year is “Prepare for the Cyber Future: IT Modernization, Cloud, & Cybersecurity”. Government and Industry experts will be on hand to brief attendees on the latest trends, best practices, and remediation strategies in cybersecurity. These one day forums will offer Cybersecurity & Information Technology personnel a unique opportunity to get up-to-date information on rapidly evolving security challenges. There will also be an exhibit hall held in conjunction with the educational briefs. All companies with cybersecurity and emerging information technology products, services and capabilities are invited to participate. Additional info for these events can be found on our Chapter website under Upcoming Events on the home page (

Also, please note that our lunch meeting this month will be held at the Hewlett-Packard Enterprise (HPE) facility located at 305 South Rockrimmon Blvd. The dinner meeting will be at the Disabled American Veterans facility at 6880 Palmer Park Blvd. Additional info will be on our website and in emails soon.
