2023 Board Elections

2022 has been an incredible year for the North Texas ISSA. With the help of our Board, Members, Sponsors, and the incredible North Texas Information Security Community we are proud to say that we have the largest single chapter membership in the ISSA, have set records for Chapter income, set an attendance record for our Cybersecurity conference and expect to make the largest donation to the Collin College Cybersecurity Scholarship Fund in our history. We merged the Fort Worth and North Texas Chapters into a regional organization with programming across the metroplex.

We have launched new programs teaching technical skills with Hack-The-Box, chartered a Scouts BSA Venturing Crew focused on K-12 Students in Cybersecurity and Senior Citizen Awareness Training, as well as a series of Community Social events traveling around the metroplex.

Many Hands make light work, and we have so much work to be done in support of our profession and the North Texas Cybersecurity Community.

We need your help in 2023 to continue to support this incredible profession and our community in its rewarding journey to protect North Texas' citizens and businesses.
