With an international communications network developed throughout the industry, the ISSA is focused on maintaining its position as The Global Voice of Information Security.

The following list includes some of the important ways that ISSA members work toward achieving the Association's goals:

* Organize international conferences, local chapter meetings, and seminars that offer educational programs, training and valuable networking opportunities.

* Offer support for professional certification and development opportunities for security practitioners.
* Create opportunities for members to join committees and boards, which provide significant leadership for the security industry.
* Facilitate discussion and feedback on key issues, such as the National Strategy to Secure Cyberspace, in order to create a unified voice for security professionals around the world that can influence public opinion, government regulations, the media and other important audiences.
