In the interest of keeping you informed of events that may be beneficial to you, there is an exciting opportunity with the ISACA Winnipeg Chapter on May 16th to witness, first-hand, how vulnerable organizations are to cyber-attack. The cyber risks that we face have exploded and understanding where the vulnerabilities are and the role we all play as employees and managers is a vital first step in mitigating those risks. From board member to owner to IT professional, we all can gain from this knowledge.
Kevin Mitnick, the world's most famous hacker, will be presenting at a keynote luncheon during the Western Canada Information Security Conference (WCISC) being held at Winnipeg's RBC Convention Centre. Tickets can be purchased for the luncheon at www.wcisc.ca or grab a ticket for the full, day-long conference to be able to network with other professionals and learn even more about the security concerns facing our organizations. The full conference pass will also give you access to the exhibitors hall where vendors are on hand to present today's tools for combatting and responding to information security threats.
The ISACA Winnipeg Chapter is also hosting a two-day CSX Fundamentals Workshop in conjunction with the WCISC. Members can attend the workshop at the ISACA Winnipeg member rate. Details about the seminar can be found at http://wcisc.ca/csx-workshop/.
