From the President
Greetings Fellow Denver Chapter Members,
Over 200 chapter members attended the Annual General Meeting on 4/20/2017! We had an awesome CPE session from Tanya Baccam on Auditing Mobile and Web Applications. Tanya has provided a summary of the slides for us (the "summary" is 118 pages!); please select the "Resources" tab in the menu bar at the top of this page, then navigate to the Chapter Presentations section. Regrettably, she cannot share the full presentation as there is a copyright issue.
We also awarded scholarships during the meeting - head on over to the "Students" section to see the winners, and the links to Video submissions. These were very good!
Registration is now open for the 2017 Rocky Mountain Information Security Conference, Colorado's premier IT Security Conference! Now with 2 full days, plus pre-conference workshops! See section below for link to read more and register.

We have postponed the CyberGirlz Summit until September 2017, in order to better reach or intended audience. However, the May RMISC sessions are still on, see below:
We have partnered with the ISSA at the RMISC, to have several sessions geared towards Women in IT, and towards learning about the CyberPatriot Competition (see flyer linked here and in the RMISC Updates Section). We'd love to get that information in the hands of High School/Middle School Students of any gender - so please send that on to interested parties. We're inviting the students, whether in the competition or not, coaches, assistants, parents and mentors to attend these sessions.
SANS Institute works with associations to collaborate and bring education, training and events to local communities.
Their Community Of Interest for Network Security (COINS) program was developed as a way of supporting local security professional communities by offering SANS instructors, content and events to local Chapters all over the U.S and Canada.
There is a SANS conference coming up in Denver June 12-15 and an invitation has been extended to ISACA Denver Chapter members to attend the night bonus sessions, which would be no charge to the members. These sessions are held throughout the week the dates/times and topics are in the link below.
Tabitha Flax at SANS Institute works with various ISACA chapters and, if anyone is interested in attending, please let Tabitha know (firstname.lastname@example.org) know which sessions you are interested in and she will personally get passes. She will also be onsite to meet anyone and make sure they have a great experience with SANS.
Don Mapes, Chapter President
