Sponsorship Program

Thank you for your interest in being a Sponsor, or renewing your sponsorship.  Our chapter depends on sponsors who make it possible for us to have chapter meetings and provide valuable events for the community.

Memberships, through chapter dues, defray only a small portion of the operating costs for our chapter. Sponsors provide the majority of the funding needed for MN ISSA to educate and inform the security community, provide scholarships, and conduct CISSP training courses free to members and non-members each year.
