Event Advisory Committee Member


The mission of the regional ISC2 Event Advisory Committees is to assist the organization in the development of robust and relevant events that will be of interest to ISC2 members and other Cybersecurity professionals around the globe. The committees will use their expertise to lead the development of localized content and provide insight and guidance into each of their regions to ensure we are providing an attractive and relevant product to our members. Event Advisory Committees will be considered event and ISC2 ambassadors and assist in increasing the exposure of our brand throughout their regions. They will be a valuable resource for ISC2 staff in the production of the event, assisting with logistical tasks as needed, and will provide feedback and opinions on program growth and share the same vision for the future.
