I am thrilled to announce that I will be speaking at this years (ISC)2 New Jersey Chapter conference, SECON NJ 2023!

On June 1st, the event will be partnering with the ISACA New Jersey Chapter and Kean University. As change this year’, they have taken the conference up a notch by adding a Career Track, where you can have your resume reviewed, headshot taken, get career advice and much more. There will be more then 30+ speakers live and in-person for our hybrid conference. Non-members and students are also invited to attend this unique, fun and educational event.

Please check out the conference website below and visit it periodically, as they are still adding great speakers and panelists to the program, such as the FBI’s Supervisory Senior Resident Special Agent for Cyber Investigations, Brian H..
