Developing and Connecting Cybersecurity Leaders in Chicago

The Chicago Chapter of the Information Systems Security Association (ISSA) has a mission to offer a stimulating combination of discussion forums, hands-on learning, CISSP certification training, conferences, and other events which are designed to enhance understanding and awareness of information security issues for information security professionals.

Whether you are exploring a career in cybersecurity, honing your technical expertise or an established security executive, the ISSA offers you a network of 10,000 colleagues worldwide to support you in managing technology risk and protecting critical information and infrastructure. Enhance your professional stature, expand your peer network and achieve your personal career goals. Your local chapter and ISSA International will provide you with a wealth of resources to keep you current with industry trends and developments in our ever-evolving field. What can we do for you today?

If you currently hold certifications, you can earn CPE credits by attending chapter meetings, ISSA Web Conferences, reading or contributing an article to the ISSA Journal or volunteering for activities associated with putting on educational meetings or conferences.

ISSA-Chicago now sponsors a Student Initiative (SI).

The SI works with local colleges, universities and technical schools to find qualified students and aligns with area businesses in establishing internships and job shadowing programs to benefit both students and business.

The SI is dedicated to growing the future cybersecurity population.
