Volunteer through (ISC)² Local Leadership

(ISC)² Team

People just like YOU give of themselves freely to serve a greater purpose across the globe through Volunteering. No matter where your heart leads you to serve, volunteers do so with passion and with the intent of creating impact.

 

Did you know that you can volunteer locally and create impact in your community with (ISC)² through the Chapter Program? The Chapter Program is a volunteer opportunity for (ISC)² members to build a local network of peers together to share knowledge, exchange resources, collaborate on projects, and create new ways to earn CPEs! 

 

Globally, volunteers can engage with the (ISC)² Chapter Program through two avenues – Membership and Leadership. Volunteering with a chapter means more than serving with your membership organization, (ISC)². Volunteering with (ISC)² Chapters creates impact by bringing your local community together to teach children, seniors, and everyone in between how to be safe and secure online. It means networking with other information security professionals by educating them about the tools, resources, certifications, and education available to them to enhance their careers and encouraging them to get involved, too. It means you, connecting with your peers, family, and friends to inspire a safe and secure cyber world.

 

As an officer of an (ISC)² Chapter, you will have the opportunity to serve in a leadership role within the chapter program. You will gain not only a sense of fellowship with your peers, but be able to lead others in Connecting, Educating, Inspiring, and Securing your local community.

 

There are many great benefits to volunteering as a chapter leader including (but not limited to):

  • Engaging in volunteer leadership roles
  • Earning CPEs by participating in professional activities
  • Participating in co-sponsored events with other industry associations
  • Assisting (ISC)² initiatives by speaking at industry events or writing articles for publication
  • Participating in local community outreach projects (public service/volunteering) to educate people about information security
  • Receiving special discounts on (ISC)² products and programs

 

You can find and get engaged with a Chapter near you by visiting the (ISC)² Chapter Directory.

 

 

 

WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU

 

Chapter Leaders: Can you please share your experience of serving as a chapter leader and volunteering with/for your local (ISC)² Chapter? What interested you about serving in a leadership position with your chapter?

 

If you’re not a leader of a local chapter, what would drive you to get engaged and volunteer in a leadership position locally through the (ISC)² Chapter Program?

Chapters are an excellent way of making contacts with others in the industry and building a network.  Meetings offer a place to share ideas, exchange war stories and to gather great information on new technology or new processes.

 

For those of you who are not members of chapters, this link might help you locate a chapter near you

https://www.isc2.org/chapters/chapter-directory 

 

If you don't find a chapter near you, some of the chapters do offer virtual meetings or you might want to consider starting a local chapter with some of your colleagues.

 

Regards

As I've said, I've always done a lot of volunteer work.  (It's not even really "paying back": it's just what I do.)

 

The experience has not always been great.  Sometimes it's been a lot of hard work over a long period with little or nothing in the way of thanks.

 

It's more a matter of "somebody has to do it," and sometimes the somebody has to be me.

I'm not a Chapter Officer simply because I travel a lot internationally so my time is limited. I would love to see a virtual chapter created for people like me to join or at least the local chapters to support that mode of communication. Speaking of Chapters, I would really like to see a standard for website naming conventions and support from (ISC)2 for an official chapter e-mail address - both would contribute to the integrity and branding of the program.

This is the virtual chapter ...

@rslade  We could make it virtual but then we should discuss with @paulablalock  first.

At a time when I was travelling a lot internationally, I was holding together the
Vancouver Security SIG. It was hard. But it can be done.

Well, we do. You could join ours (free), and then you'd get to join the meeting
Webcast whereever you are.

Yeah, good luck with that :-)
