Message From The President

We held our final meeting of the year last Thursday and it turned out to be a huge success! We had a record breaking number of people attending this event, as we had roughly 90 cybersecurity professionals and students participate in lively discussions with our guests Thomas Flynn, Assistant Special Agent in Charge at the Secret Service and Tia Hopkins, Founder of Empow(H)er Cybersecurity and VP of Global Solutions Engineering at eSentire.

Tom educated everyone on how the Secret Service can assist organizations before or after a breach, and Tia stunned the audience with her academic background and ambitious goals.

Looking forward to the new year, as we continue building on our momentum. May this year bring new happiness, new achievements, and new friendships!
