This month we have what should be one of the most interesting topics we have had in a very long time. Read on.

As the number of digital natives (also referred to as the Millennials/Net Generation(N-Gen)/the Echo) increases in the federal and contractor workforce, they bring vastly different perspective and values to the office/lab/field.

As a generation reared on broadband and mobile access, their perspectives, understanding and application of information technology and more specifically as it relates to cyber security, diverge immensely from prior generations of digital immigrants (Generation X, Baby Boomers, etc).

At 90+ million strong, this generation is a tidal wave just now approaching the economic workforce shore and the arrival of a new administration is accelerating that arrival in ever growing numbers. They are tech-savvy users accomplished with instant messaging, social network sites such as Facebook, You Tube, Twitter and hundreds of other web applications.

They expect high speed access to IT resources and the Net both in and out of the office. They multi-task, working multiple projects in the office and utilizing multiple web applications simultaneously during personal time. They work in mixed locations (i.e. the office, remote office, home offices, and coffee shops).

They are a boon to the workforce and will challenge not just the management/operational/technical controls of your and your clients' IT Security programs but the basic tenets, perspectives and behaviors on which those programs are based.

Ernest Wohnig will lay out a blueprint of this rising demographic in terms of how they think, work, interact, socialize. This will lead to a discussion of the ubiquitous and diverse usage of IT reflected in the demographic group. Finally, we will also look at how this impacts IT Managers/IT Security Managers and their programs and what they need to know and understand regarding the group's views toward IT usage, security and privacy.  

On July 9 we will have a presentation on hospital information systems by chapter member Tom Petry.  On August 13 we are planning a presentation on Linux.

Other subjects we are exploring include smart grid development, cloud computing and stream computing.  And in December we will again have our big holiday party.  And coming this summer is our second cosponsored social networking event.   Keep checking into our website for details as they become available.

The temperature of a room is always room temperature.
