As a Board Member of not just (ISC)2, but also of the (ISC)2 Foundation, I’m very excited to share that (ISC)2 is offering a live, in-person Safe and Secure Online Volunteer Training right here in North Carolina on Tuesday, December 2nd. The training runs from 11am-2pm with a break for lunch. It’s definitely worth the drive from Greensboro, Winston-Salem, Raleigh, Sanford, Durham and even Charlotte and Greenville. These live trainings are typically only offered at large industry events such as the RSA Conference and Security Congress. As the event description notes, it really is a unique opportunity and I hope my colleagues in the area will join me in taking full advantage!
Details of the training are below. I’d strongly encourage any and all NC InfoSec professionals qualified to attend to join us Tuesday. I say “us” only because I’ll be attending as well. The event is hosted by the (ISC)2 Raleigh-Durham Chapter, and is sponsored by the Raleigh ISSA Chapter.
I can’t speak highly enough about the Safe and Secure Online program. For the past year or so, I’ve heard some amazing stories of how these sessions have changed the lives of children across the US and the world. Read below for more about this great program, and I hope to see you there.
