Sessions-bucketWe listened to the feedback from past year’s events and this year, cloud security is the largest track with three FULL days of sessions on the topic. The Swiss Army Knife track also returns this year. This track is a potpourri of cybersecurity topics that impact practitioners and sessions will include tips, tools and tricks to help attendees in their day-to-day work.

New this year are workshops, with topics including “Can IT and OT Ever Come to the Same Table?” and “CISO Skill Set: The Tools and Techniques You Need to Succeed.”

The Center for Cyber Safety and Education will also be presenting a session for Safe and Secure Online Volunteers, “I’ve Completed Orientation, Now What?” to help members put their knowledge to use and help their community – children, parents and seniors – stay safe online.

If you’re not a member of your local (ISC)² Chapter, be sure to attend the information session hosted by Jayda Shriver, Chapter Program Manager. The session, (ISC)² Chapters: Membership Has Its Benefits, will discuss ways to learn how to join, or start, a chapter in your local community.
