How To Get More Involved In The IT Security Community

Dark Reading Radio offers tips on how to network with your IT security peers, learn more about the industry and the profession, and participate in community outreach

Dark Reading has been on the Web for almost nine years now, and one of the things that has impressed us about IT security professionals is how much they care. They take pride in protecting their users and their organization's data, and they take it personally when their systems are breached. They reach out and talk to each other to commiserate and solve problems. They seek to educate others on the threats they see, whether those others are their users, senior citizens, or elementary school kids.

With so many passionate professionals in the industry, the information security arena offers a plethora of opportunities to network with your peers, work together on industry-wide initiatives, and educate users on new threats and Internet safety. On Wednesday Dark Reading Radio presented a live broadcast discussion with suggestions and insights on these opportunities and how you can get involved in them.

On the Dark Reading Radio show, Senior Editor Sara Peters and I spoke with Jennifer Minella and Joshua Corman, two of the IT security community's most well-known professional leaders, both of whom are involved in multiple initiatives that promote professional association as well as community outreach. We discussed trade associations such as (ISC)2, community initiatives such as I Am the Cavalry, and many other opportunities to network with your peers and advance the industry's message to end users and business leaders. You'll also have a chance to check out an online chat, where Jennifer, Joshua and others shared ways that security pros can get more involved to help build the community and advance their own careers.

If you're looking for ways to get more involved in your profession and the information security community, or if you are involved in an industry group that you'd like to chat about with others, Wednesday's show is for you. Register now -- and you can listen to the recorded show anytime afterward via the Dark Reading Radio archives.
