Welcome to the SC Midlands Chapter of ISACA Site!
Our April Networking Seminar had some great reviews. Ken Cutler is a repeat presenter for our chapter and we thank him for spending the time and sharing his knowledge on TCP/IP, DMZ Networks and Encryption.
Our next class will be held on June 5 titled “The New Corporate Espionage: Social Engineering”. This will be a combined session with the local chapters of IIA and ACFE and we hope to see many of you in attendance.
ISACA announced a milestone of reaching our 200th chapter at the North American Leadership conference in Dallas. With 116,000 members covering 82 countries and 6 continents; you are truly part of a global organization and have access to a vast array of resources as an ISACA member. I came away from the conference feeling quite proud about the fact that our SC Midlands chapter will be offering over 90 CPE’s of relevant training this year. I spoke with several other chapters of equal or greater size that offer monthly meetings of 1 - 3 CPE and an 8 hour ‘seminar’ once or twice a year. Thank-you to all our volunteers that make this happen.
The board is planning a social event to occur just as soon as we finalize the details. Please watch for the announcement as this will be a fun time to mingle and catch up with chapter members.
Make sure to check the calendar on our website. Not only do we have our own classes listed but also offerings of webinars and speakers at other chapters that we feel might be of interest and within reasonable proximity.
As always, the SC Midlands chapter is here to serve our constituents, so feel free to send any suggestions to the president’s email.
