Welcome to our chapter website!

Established in 1991, the mission of the Ottawa Chapter of the Information Systems Security Association (ISSA) is to provide a friendly, interactive environment for those with an interest in information security. Through meetings, guest speakers, discussion forums, this website and the concerted efforts of our members, we strive to accomplish this goal. These local Chapter level benefits are augmented by the advantages of membership in ISSA International which provides an e-newsletter, educational online webinars, and partnerships with other IT security organizations many of whom offer discounts to ISSA members.

All of this is aimed towards helping members be more effective in their work both technically and personally, and towards providing professional development opportunities.
