Grave Danger! Is there any other type of Danger?

This is a unique presentation as it incorporates ethical behavior with the development of Security Education, Awareness and Training Programs. By doing this it can assist in reducing risk to individuals and companies but also provide guidance on proper ethical behavior in various situations.

PCI COMPLIANCE: Do I really Need to Be Concerned?

PCI should be getting easier, but as technology changes and as organizations out-source processes, risks to data are still reality and the risks are not necessarily decreasing. Organizations need to be aware of the on-going compliance requirements and areas of focus that may need attention. Acquiring banks, processors, the card brands and customers have an expectation that organizations are focused on protecting card data. This session will review PCI requirements that cause “pain”, as well as tips for improving your card data footprint.

Are non-members and guests welcome at meetings and events?

Yes, we welcome individuals at large from the security community to join us for any of our events. We simply ask that, after experiencing personally the value of our community at two events, individuals consider joining ISSA for the additional benefits that membership provides.

Why do we have to register to attend meetings and events?

Besides assisting the board with planning logistics for our events, registering for meetings and events, then checking in when you attend, provides you with self-service documentation you can print out to support your CPE credits if you are audited.
