From the President
Greetings Fellow Denver Chapter Members,
The ISACA Denver Chapter was treated to a wonderful presentation by recognized industry Cyber Security Expert and ISACA International Board Member Rob Clyde. Rob discussed the new mission and values for ISACA, and then gave an insightful session on Safely Embracing the Cyber Future. He has kindly provided the slides from the presentation; the slide deck is available in the "Resources" tab.
Our February meeting will be in downtown Denver, at the History Colorado Center. Brandon Williams will be presenting on the implementation of Two Factor Authentication. Also, we are opening the floor for nominations for the election of the next chapter year's Officers.
There's an App for that...
The January Meeting saw the introduction of our ISACA Denver Chapter App, available for download in the Apple and Google App stores! We're excited to offer this as a means of improving communications, feedback, and to possibly use as sign in/sign out for our chapter functions.
Rocky Mountain Regional Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition
We have a fantastic volunteer opportunity coming up! ISACA Denver is a proud sponsor of the RMCCDC (March 10-11, 2017). This event puts college teams into a scenario where they are a replacement security operations team at a fictitious company that is under Cyber attack by an adversary. Volunteers are needed to setup/tear down, judge the competition and play the Red team!
White Team - competition officials that observe team performance in their competition area and evaluate team performance and rule compliance.
Red Team - penetration testing professionals simulating external hackers attempting to gain unauthorized access to competition teams' systems.
Black Team - competition support members that provide technical support, pick-up and deliver communications, and provide overall administrative support to the competition.
Blue Team/Competition Team - the institution competitive teams consisting of students competing in a CCDC event.
You can read more about the event at http://rmccdc.regis.edu/ or in this flyer. And you can volunteer by going to http://regonline.com/rmccdc2017
Three outside events are coming up in February/March that I wanted to make you aware of:
The Denver IIA Chapter is hosting it's 4th Annual Leadership Conference
Healthcare Financial Management Association Colorado Chapter is hosting the HFMA Compliance Conference
The Cyber Security Summit (for C-Suite) is coming to Denver
You can read more about these in the "Events Sponsored by Other Chapters" section.
