2016/17 ISACA Vancouver President's Welcome Address
Dear ISACA Vancouver Family:
Welcome to the 2016-17 ISACA Vancouver Season!
I want to start by thanking our new Board of Directors and Volunteers for the commitments they have made to bringing you what we hope will be the most exciting ISACA Vancouver agenda ever. I am proud to be associated with such a fine team of professionals without whom ISACA Vancouver and our ever growing list of professional development and social networking opportunities would not exist.
To kick off the year, many of you enjoyed our “Summer Socials” including a series of after work “Tuesday Strolls” on our beautiful North Shore mountains. In August, the 2017 BC AWARE team took in an evening of Vancouver Canadians baseball. It was an opportunity for some of us to check-in over the summer, and for the BC AWARE Organizing Committee to rally its volunteer troops. Many thanks to Box, Cisco, LogRhythm, & TELUS for their generous sponsorship which allowed us to make this a free event! One of our goals this year is to incorporate these kinds of informal networking opportunities into our calendar. We feel there is as much value just getting out and having some fun as there is with our more formal training and professional development activities. With that, you can expect to see more of this kind of thing and I want to encourage each and every one of you to participate.
Planning is well underway to continue on with the great work we started last year under Rob Behrouzian’s leadership. Expect to see more from your Directors in the coming weeks regarding Mentorship, Student Outreach, Cybersecurity Training, CISM ,CRISC, CISA, and CGEIT Exam Preparations, BC AWARE 2017 and of course, our regular monthly lunch and learn sessions.
On that note, our first monthly event for the year is titled “Building Enterprise Security in the Millennial Age” and will be held Sep 28, 12-2PM at NYIT, 701 W Georgia St #1700 – Jordan room (NYIT is located at the intersection of Georgia & Granville). Please register from the ISACA Vancouver Web Site: www.isaca-vancouver.org
We are excited to kick off our monthly lunchtime education events with this fantastic presentation by Dominic Vogel. Dominic is a Cyber Security leader and public speaker based in Vancouver and we are fortunate to have him present this topic ahead of his talk at the ISACA CSX Conference in Las Vegas later this year.
As always, your input and feedback are greatly appreciated. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me anytime if there is anything I can do make your ISACA Vancouver experience better.
Have a great year everyone. I look forward to hopefully seeing you at one of our upcoming events!
Justin Malczewski, President
