From the President
Can you belive it's August already?
Our Social Hike got rained out, so we are re-scheduling it for the evening of September 17th, right before our first meeting of the Chapter Year. Same location - The Bluffs Hiking Trail. This is a 3 mile walk with refreshments on site afterwards (sorry, no alcohol at this one. Just water, sports drinks and granola bars!). We also have a traditional Happy Hour and Social Networking event at Slattery's in the Landmark center on August 21st.
Don't forget to mark your calendars for the September 18th chapter meeting, which is FREE to ISACA Denver Chapter Members. At no additional charge, We have Tanya Baccam from the SANS institute providing an extended session on Auditing Active Directory and UNIX. Tanya has presented to us before, and is one of our top rated speakers. In addition, there will be a panel sdiscussion "An Auditors Guide to the Galaxy - Understanding the Audit Universe and Risk-based planning" for the regular lunch meeting session.

The Rocky Mountain Information Security Conference was an outstanding success, we had the largest attendance ever (well over 600 registrants). One of the highlights was the Hacker Academy's Cyber Skills Competition. This was a "Capture the flag" scenario, where The Hacker Academy setup a sandbox for attendees to utilize tools and IT savvy to ethically hack the target sandbox environment; with the intention of discovering the way the hypothetical company's information was stolen, and to recover same. Winners of the event were: 1st Place Matt Koch, 2nd Place Ben Church, and 3rd Place Vince Pascale.
The Board welcomes you to the 2014-2015 Chapter Year!
Don Mapes, Chapter President
