The Los Angeles Chapter of the Information Systems Security Association (ISSA-LA) invites you to participate in our fourth annual Information Security Summit, “The Growing Cyber Threat: Protect Your Business!”

The Summit is the premier Information Security event in Southern California. It is the only educational forum in Southern California specifically designed to encourage participation and interaction among all three vital information security constituencies:

  • Business executives, senior business managers and their trusted advisors who need unbiased knowledge and guidance to better manage their organizations’ information risk
  • Technical IT personnel who need to meet the increasingly difficult challenge of protecting their organizations’ information systems infrastructure against today’s cyber threats
  • Information security leaders, managers and practitioners

“We’re excited by the growth of the Summit and the fabulous opportunity it gives our vendors to get in front of important decision makers,” says ISSA-LA President Stan Stahl. “The Summit’s growth has been spectacular, nearly doubling every year to nearly 400 last year. With the success of our Community Outreach Program and our move to the Universal Hilton, we are poised to attract between 600 and 800 attendees this year.”

The Information Security Summit is a key pillar of ISSA-LA’s Community Outreach Program, designed to provide information security knowledge and education to the 300,000 businesses, not-for-profit and government agencies in the 18th largest economy in the world. The goal of the program is to stimulate the kind of necessary collaboration between Los Angeles business and community leaders, technical IT professionals and the information security community required to more effectively secure sensitive information.

The Summit offers information security vendors a very high-value marketing opportunity. We have several different sponsorship opportunities designed to support different levels of participation.
