Statement of Goals
The ISSA has provided me, as I am sure the vast majority of those reading this, with access to numerous resources that enhance our opportunities to collaborate and network, share experiences and ideas, learn, and grow professionally within the Information Security industry.
As a Director on the International Board, I will strive to continue to support and drive efforts that will further develop and leverage our international resources in the information security industry to enhance overall industry-leading value that the ISSA can bring our members world-wide, as well as the future generations of security professionals. As such, it is important to:
