Why Start A Chapter?
NAISG recognizes the need to promote, learn and understand information
security. Although much information is available online, sometimes there
just is no replacement for the benefits that members gain from
face-to-face interactions. Learning about information security,
networking to find the perfect employee or employer, or viewing a
demonstration of the latest products from a particular vendor are only
some of the advantages of attending a chapter meeting.
