Gala Highlights 

It was great connecting with members at our AGM, gala and Wasserman award dinner in June. We had a very well attended event at City Winery where we shared highlights of our last year including 60+ training events, 20+ member events, $37,000 awarded in scholarships, and 24,000+ hours of CPEs attained by members and trainees. We also celebrated our Wasserman Award recipient, Alex Abramov! 


  • InfraGard NY: we have partnered with the InfraGard NY Metro members alliance for a joint event that will held on August 1 at Microsoft’s 122 Fifth Avenue location. We are bringing together speakers from law enforcement and the private sector to discuss collaboration on cybersecurity. 

  • Sprinto: our partners at Sprinto would like to invite GRC leaders and Directors in InfoSec and Cybersecurity to join their co-founders for a night of casual conversations and discussions around the grand world of Infosec and GRC.  It's an opportunity to mix and share notes on what it takes to run a modern GRC function - the challenges, pitfalls, and learnings that come with being a leader!
