From ISSA Members
“My security team regularly attends our local ISSA meetings. They gain the benefit of training and information sharing with other information security professionals. They also gain the opportunity to give something back to the security community in the form of topics they share. I know my team, as well as I, have learned from our participation in local ISSA meetings.”Ron Shuck
“My involvement in ISSA has opened up job opportunities and friendships that would have otherwise not existed. More specifically, I’ve been able to develop and sustain professional relationships that I can rely on going forward. In addition, serving as a chapter officer has helped strengthen my leadership skills, which in turn has made me more successful at my job.”William E. Smith, Jr.
“Through a variety of mechanisms, ISSA offers unbiased information on a variety of information security issues and best practices. For example, we have found the information provided in the ISSA Journal to be helpful in discussions with our government sponsors on establishing frameworks for evaluating risks on specific IT topics and analyzing commercial offerings.”Nate Adams
