What we’re about
The South Florida Chapter of the Information Systems Security Association (ISSA)® welcomes you. ISSA® is a not-for-profit, international organization of information security professionals and practitioners. It provides educational forums, publications and peer interaction opportunities that enhance the knowledge, skill and professional growth of its members.
We bring together a wide range of IT Security professionals from the South Florida area. We have members from Ft. Pierce to the Keys. We draw from a wide range from independent consultants to those working in government, public and private corporations, non-profits, and educational institutes; and our member also range from students up to those in the "c-suite".
We meet monthly on the Third Thursday of each month. Our standard location is at Nova Southeastern University in Davie, but we plan on having 3 meetings in Dade and 3 in the Palm Beaches. We typically have at least a couple of speakers each month. Presentations must be technical, no sales pitches.
*** ALL are welcome to attend our monthly Chapter meetings, FREE of charge. We ask that after attending 3 meetings (annually) you would consider joining and receiving the complete benefits of membership, such as earning CPEs, and discounted attendance to local conferences, etc. (CPEs are only made available to PAID members in good standing). To join, visit our website at www.sfissa.org and click "Join SFISSA" at the top, which will take you to the ISSA page to join (please be sure to also join the South Florida Chapter). ***
We have an annual Hack the Flag/Chili Cook Off event, usually toward the end of the summer, and a biannual Conference, usually around March in odd numbered years.

- March 2024 Monthly MeetingGraham Center Ballrooms, Miami, FL
Speaker: Steve Toole is a Principal Solutions Consultant with SailPoint Technologies. With almost 20 years Identity Security experience, he is responsible for helping clients around the world understand Identity Security and how to apply it to achieve business goals and objectives.
Brief synopsis: Today's identity security challenges are massively different than they were even a handful of years ago, never mind a decade or two ago. The way we work has evolved. The centrality of identities to both the enablement and security of today's enterprise has increased significantly. The threat landscape is more dynamic than ever, and nearly always comes down to a compromised identity as the trigger point for the majority of breaches today. It's all gotten so much more interwoven, complex and accelerated. What worked a decade or two ago to secure enterprise identities clearly won't work now to address today's security challenges
Afterwards, we will have our usual networking portion afterwards, possibly at a local watering hole!
We are very excited to see you all.
