Upcoming Events:

1) December Meeting. Our December meeting will once again be in a round table discussion format. Last year's discussion topics were quite engaging, and everyone's participation in the discussions is wanted. from your questions, to your comments and experiences; it is all very interesting. So, think about a few discussion topics that you'd like the group to address and send them over. I'll compile a list and we can get the conversation going with your questions/comments.

The ISSA-Milwaukee chapter has been approached by SANS to consider a partnership with them. SANS wants to be involved in the community and local organizations, and opportunities for SANS hosted meetings and/or events as well as educational opportunities for members are possible. We will have a meeting with the SANS representative in the very near future and as we find out more in terms of the partnership, we will be sharing that information with you.

As always, if you, or anyone you know, is interested in presenting information of interest to the chapter, please let me or any other chapter officer know. We are always interested in finding topics of current interest in the area of Information Security. Also, if you have ideas that you believe would work well for a round table or moderated panel discussion send those our way.

Please RSVP. We look forward to seeing you at the November meeting.

Mike Block, President
