COVID-19 Update from Raleigh ISSA

In order to keep our members and guests safe while continuing to fulfill our mission to bring exceptional cybersecurity training and presentations, the Raleigh ISSA chapter will conduct all meeting and presentations virtually for the next two months. This will include our April and May chapter meetings.
We will send links for members and non members to rsvp while providing specific directions on how to attend our meetings.
Once we resume meeting in person beyond May, we will take additional steps outlined by the Center for Disease (CDC) Control to limit exposure to the corona virus.
·         We will ensure we have hand sanitizer available at all meetings and training sessions
·         Food and beverages will be served to the attendees to limit contact
·         We will ask any member or guest to stay home if they are sick. We will continue to provide online options for those who wish to attend the meetings/trainings remotely. CPEs will be submitted to those who attend online.

The Raleigh ISSA Chapter Board will continue to closely monitor and share the latest updates and guidance. We will also continue to make decisions as the situation and needs change.
