John Pescatore is certainly one of the world’s most influential thought leaders in IT Security. John is a “Security Lifer” based on his 40 years in our industry at SANS, Gartner, GTE, TIS, IDC and the NSA.
Recent writings: “How Security Improvements Reduce Business Outages”, “ Rogue IT has seen the benefit of using the cloud, too!” and “Patches are like vaccines: Low quality leads to long-lasting resistance and self-inflicted wounds.”
John’s most famous quotes include: “Security is important for cell phones because it is much more likely that a user will lose that device than a laptop or desktop computer.” and “The open-source community hasn’t learned to do bare-knuckle marketing yet. But every time Microsoft has these problems, it helps Linux in a very big way.”

Continuing Professional Education Units
ISSA Chicago Chapter meeting attendees are eligible to claim CPE units. CPE allotment is determined by your certification body and is typically one CPE per hour of attendance with reporting in quarter-CPE increments. For auditing purposes, the start and stop times of your participation will be provided as evidence in an email following the meeting. ISSA Chicago suggests attendees round down to the nearest quarter; i.e. 1 hour 54 minutes would be reported as 1.75 CPEs
If an attendee participates for less than 15 minutes, the system will not send a confirmation.
