SECON NJ 2023 Conference Welcome Note

This Special Edition of our newsletter is to encourage you to attend this unique conference, as more than half of the speakers are members from the NJ (ISC)² or ISACA chapters, as well as students from Kean University. While this event is hybrid, we strongly encourage you to attend this event if you live locally. (Details of this conference can be found in the next section.)

This event would not be possible without the partnerships of (ISC)² New Jersey Chapter, ISACA New Jersey Chapter, Kean University, and all of our sponsors!
