Ken's Korner

Tran's Corner

In this special edition, I'm stepping in for Ken's Korner while he enjoys a well-deserved vacation.

I had the privilege of moderating the February chapter monthly meeting for the first time, and I thoroughly enjoyed embodying Ken's spirit throughout the two-hour session!

Recently, we've kicked off a collaboration with the ISC2 Philly Chapter. It was a pleasure to meet with Roger Vann and Cyrus Patell from their team. We're excited about the prospect of hosting joint events in central and south NJ in the near future.

This year, I'm thrilled to be working closely with our dedicated chapter members on numerous exciting initiatives aimed at supporting our community. I invite you to join us in supporting and contributing to the success of these initiatives!

Join Our Discord Server!

We now have roughly 400 members on our Discord Server!

By adding a Discord server to the mix of our communication tools, we now have real-time collaboration between our members 24/7. Looking for a job or for some advice on bettering yourself on the job? Find it here!

Our Discord Server is a dynamic hub for job seekers, offering firsthand job opportunities in various IT and Cyber positions from chapter members. It's also a resource for members seeking internships, aiming to enhance their skill sets, or wanting to share resumes for reviews and feedback (including interview skills assistance). In addition to our website and newsletter, we announce upcoming events through Discord Server notifications. You'll receive regular reminders, so you won’t miss out on our engaging events! Moreover, our mentorship program is hosted on Discord, facilitating interaction with mentors during your cohort.

For those members that want to communicate on a variety of topics between meetings using Discord, just send Ken an email at president@isc2chapternj.org to get the link.

We are looking for volunteers to help make Discord a better and fun place. Please reach out to Bryon Singh at bryon@isc2chapternj.org with ideas or ping him on Discord!

The members of the Discord Committee are Bryon Singh, Tran Cheung, Giovanni Mercado, John Linkowsky , Krishna Nekkalapudi, Matthew Lang, Michael LeBlanc, Nikunj Shah, Brett Smith and Saurabh Sagdeo.
