Chapter Meetings

ISSA's strength is in its chapters. Local chapter meetings and seminars offer great educational programming, training and networking opportunities. Hands-on workshops, cutting edge technology and top notch speakers = power packed educational programming! ISSA Sacramento holds monthly chapter meetings and HANDS-ON Tech Tuesdays for its members.


ISSA-Sacramento periodically offers CISSP Review Seminars. ISSA is a founding contributor of (ISC)2 which offers the only comprehensive certification of information security professionals: the CISSP (Certified Information System Security Professional) certification.

Cyber Defender Workshops

The Cyber Defender Workshops are held during the evening.  The purpose of the workshops is to provide hands-on experience with tools, technology, and methods in order to be proficient as a Cyber Defender.

Currently the workshops have been suspended in order to revise and enhance the content.  We hope to start in January 2017 with a new and improved Cyber Defender Workshop.  Please stay tuned.
