May President's Message
Wow! But May is a busy month for events!!! and it continues into June, as well....
The SC Chamber's 3rd Annual Cybersecurity summit highlights a busy month as many of our industry partners are sponsoring educational sessions--including Rove and RSA. We are looking forward to May 28th when IntSights, who is partnering with the SC Midlands ISACA chapter, wil present on the Dark Web. The event has already 'sold out' and there is a waiting list for anyone hoping to still get in.
Following that event, is the annual Technosecurity Conference in Myrtle Beach June 2-5. We will have a table at the event. Stop by and say hello and learn more about the new CSX offerings. Mid June will see another valuable training event as we have partnered to bring in John Gatto, renowned speaker. Check the events calendar for all upcoming events.
We are excited to welcome Melissa Cody as our lead for the SheLeadsTech initiative and Chris Ellenburg who will lead our Young Professionals activities. In addition, we are thrilled to welcome our new Education Director, Mr. Ross Barber. Ross is an Information Technology professional with the the South Carolina Department of Consumer Affairs and eager to learn how best to work to meet the educational needs of our members.
ISACA International has provided our chapter with a members portal that launched earlier this year. The new website is located at www.engage.isaca.org. Once there, sign in with your ISACA credentials and you will be able to see and join a variety of ‘communities’. Our chapter is one of such communities and you should be able to find it under the “My Communities” tab on the website. The chapter portal is still a work in progress and we welcome any feedback and suggestions on how we can continuously improve your chapter experience.
June is the month for the Chapter’s Annual Meeting—Look for more details via newsletter, website, and social media.
We Are One. We Are 50.
Locally in SC, we continue to provide high quality educational and networking events to the ISACA community as can be found on our website at www.scisaca.org. Check out the website for the latest news and sign up for our monthly newsletter!!!
