The National Cyber Warfare Foundation featuring Brett Scott and Jerry Eastman: https://cwr.dev on:

Overcoming cybersecurity weakness: not all cyber ranges are the same. The National Cyber Warfare Foundation will demonstrate Live-Fire Cyber Warfare. You will see on August 5 in real time a cyber-firing range in action. These ranges were created in order to rapidly train and upskill cybersecurity talent with hands-on learning. These demos will show how you and your organization could take part in range time. Red Team, Blue Team, SOC Analysts and everyone involved with Threat Hunting and Incident Response should attend this presentation.


The Security Architecture Podcast featuring Evgeniy Kharam and Dmitry Raidman:  https://www.security-architecture.org

Avoiding Security Theater:  A framework that helps security professionals perform a proper assessment of security tools.  Following this approach increases the success rate of onboarding and utilization of security tools, ensuring they are aligned with the organization’s requirements and architecture. The framework helps to avoid the situation of buying a solution that becomes shelfware. From 1 of the most widely followed podcasts in cyber, this is a do-not-miss session.


OptimalCipher featuring Dr. Stan Trepetin; https://www.optimalcipher.com/ on:

Homomorphic and Function-Preserving Encryption: Despite continued, substantial investment in cyber security, breaches continue to impact organizations. Do more effective security controls exist? This talk will present Homomorphic and Function-Preserving Encryption–nascent but transformational approaches in protecting data confidentiality.  Not familiar with Homomorphic and Function Preserving Encryption? Mark your calendars for August 5!


Cybersecurity Collaborative featuring Parham Eftekhari: https://www.cyberleadersunite.com/

The Cybersecurity Collaborative Explained – In this presentation you will see how the world’s most security-centric organizations are effectively exchanging pertinent cyber information in real time. The Cybersecurity Collaborate member organizations cross validate services, strategies and solutions to educate community members. Unlike an ISAC, Cybersecurity Collective member firms span many industries and verticals. If a solution works well for a member, other members will hear about it.  The importance of cooperation in our industry will be exemplified in this presentation. Please know that our long-term member, Todd Fitzgerald, is the Vice President of Cybersecurity Strategy at the Cybersecurity Collaborative.

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.
