Our members consist of (ISC)² credentialed professionals who hold either SSCP, CAP, CSSLP and/or a CISSP or advanced concentration certification, as well as non-credentialed professionals who have an interest in learning and practicing information security.

Our chapter program is focused on sharing knowledge and exchanging ideas among security professionals in the local area. Ultimately, we want to advance the field of information security by educating practitioners and the public at large on how to protect and defend against security threats.
