ISC² Silicon Valley Chapter meetings are held on 2nd Tuesdays each month at 6pm

Virtual meetings during the pandemic

Since May, (ISC)² Silicon Valley Chapter meetings are being held online until further notice due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We continue to meet on the 2nd Tuesdays of each month.

The interruption to the chapter's in-person meetings is temporary. Resumption of in-person meetings in upcoming months will depend on changes to Santa Clara County and State of California orders, as well as availability of a meeting venue.

Let's set expectations that things will not instantly return to 2019's picture of normal. When in-person meetings resume, expect requirement of face coverings and social distancing measures to continue until a vaccine for COVID-19 is developed and sufficiently distributed in the population. Even then, we should all take caution to stay home if having flu symptoms, or if any member of one's household does.

Round table discussion at end of online meeting

Since July we've added a round table discussion to the agenda at the end of the meeting. It has helped bring back some of the sense of meeting people that is hard to do online.

Self-introductions are encouraged but not required. Any current cybersecurity topics are good to bring up. Also relevant are who's looking for work and who has job openings. Since we're in the middle of a global pandemic, it's also fair to simply ask how everyone is doing.
