I can hardly believe that Summer is nearly over, and that soon schools will be back in session! We had a GREAT session last month and I’m glad to see so many people could make it! This month, we have Brian Kelley from AgFirst (on August 19th) to talk about Security and Auditing Across the Entire Data Flow and next month … six CPEs for only $80 … and we have a two-day seminar (September 21st and 22nd) by Leighton Johnson on Risk Management! Sign up when you receive your personal invitation!
Congratulations to our new student members Joey Beasley and Jack Haslup for winning the ISACA CSX CyberSecurity Nexus Contest!! Both are students at USC and wrote papers to be considered for a free day of CSX training in Washington, DC. Congratulations, guys!
We still have a few open Board Positions (Vice President, Education Assistants, Young Professionals Liaison, and Social Media Director) and we need your help! You’d be joining a great team of professionals who work to better the Chapter, as well as receive CPEs and 25% off training events! Think about it, and let me know!
Thank you, members, for recognizing the value ISACA membership offers you! We work to add value to your membership!

Cybersecurity Fundamentals Certificate Exam Now Being Offered
ISACA’s Cybersecurity Nexus (CSX) offers myriad resources to help you and your chapter members learn more about cybersecurity. ISACA can help you and your fellow members emerge as cybersecurity leaders with the offering of the Cybersecurity Fundamentals Certificate.
The Cybersecurity Fundamentals Certificate exam, which is geared toward anyone interested in pursuing a career in cybersecurity, can be taken online. The certificate aligns with the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) and the Skills Framework for the Information Age (SFIA).
