On behalf of the Chicago IIA and Chicago ISACA chapters, we invite you and your teams to our annual Hacking and Cybersecurity conference! 

Due to the evolving COVID landscape, the 2021 8th Annual IT Hacking Conference (The Ocho) will now occur as a virtual zoom conference

Given this is our 8th year, why not look to 'The Ocho'?  We all need a little Dodgeball in our life.  We all can map the 5 D’s of dodgeball to cybersecurity, and our lives as a whole:
“Dodge, duck, dip, dive and dodge"

We have lined up a great cast of speakers and the lowest cost per NASBA CPE you will find for a quality event!!  Did I mention 21 CPEs in total?

We hope to see you there virtually and your teammates + others in your network.
