Hello ISACA Detroit Members,
I hope that you all had a safe and secure National Cyber Security Awareness month in October!
Our October meeting was full of insight thanks to Dr. Baljeet Malhotra (Founder, Teejlab) for his workshop experience on API security, governance, and risk management, as well as Juman Doleh-Alomary’s outlook on challenges returning to work and the implications for auditors abound. In case you missed it, you can find the presentations posted to our members only content section of the chapter web site.
I’d separately like to thank the Office of U.S. Senator Gary C. Peters and Cori Wofford (Detroit Regional Director) for sharing the recent press release covering newly proposed legislation for critical infrastructure entities to report cyber-attacks. Our chapter board takes pride in monitoring new developments in this space and in making sure we provide meaningful updates to the board. We hope that you appreciated the summary and highlights of the press release sent out on October 29th.
NOVEMBER ISACA CHAPTER WEBINAR MEETING
Please join us for our next chapter meeting on Wednesday, November 17, 2021 (virtual Zoom meeting)!
