What We Offer Your Association

"John Strand spoke as Keynote Speaker in both 2008 and 2009 at the Louisville Metro InfoSec Conference, which I led as President of the ISSA Kentuckiana Chapter. Both years, John was the highlight of the conference - his presentations show his high-level expertise, his commitment to educating information security professionals, and his humor. John's participation in the conference is easily the #1 draw - his involvement is a large part of the continued success and growth of this conference. I highly recommend John Strand as a security expert and fantastic speaker on topics related to Information Security." - Randall Frietzche, President at ISSA Kentuckiana Chapter - October 15, 2009

"The chapter members and invited guess found the information very interesting, timely, and educational. The use of the Webcast, a first for our chapter, was an excellent approach. With travel costs raising, conflicting speaker schedules, and availability of multiple key speakers, the use of this particular Webcast was a great way to meet our chapter needs. I am very encouraged by the ease of use, the effectiveness of the presentation, and the interaction between the presenters and the attendees, using this type of Webcast. I encourage SANS to actively pursue this vehicle as a way to provide educational information to other ISSA chapters.

Thanks again for a great experience and helping our chapter meet our goal of providing top education opportunities to our members." - Manny Morales, President of ISSA Tech Valley Chapter, Albany, NY

"We really appreciate the COINS program." - Lydia Lourbacos, Vice President of ISACA, Louisiana

"On behalf of the board of directors of ISSA Puerto Rico, we want to extent our deepest appreciation for an outstanding presentation. The subject and presentation were without a doubt ideal and interesting. I hear nothing but great things about the meeting. I look forward to future occasions and opportunities to work together." - Peter Bruno, President of ISSA, Puerto Rico
