Last year's event was a huge success with 230+ professionals in attendance both days and the highest feedback ratings of any chapter event offered!  With your attendance and an expanded venue, we are hoping to build upon the success of prior events with a goal of 350 people in attendance each day!   We are again hosting this event at the Swissotel Chicago, which offers spacious meeting and networking throughout the day. Additionally, complimentary Wi-Fi and discounted valet parking ($29) are available for all attendees.

Our highest rated keynotes and interactive CAE and CISO panel discussions on the integration of InfoSec and Risk Management are both events you don’t want to miss. This in addition to our historical topics containing the most real-world application of Information Security and Cybersecurity knowledge and skills that can be applied to the world of Internal Audit, IT Audit, InfoSec, Risk, and Compliance. This year’s theme addresses emerging threats by discussing solutions and how the union of Audit, InfoSec, and Risk/Compliance departments creates a strong force, allowing the united enterprise to strike back against cyber threats. Following the success of last year’s event, the dual-track format featuring concurrent technical and non-technical tracks are offered again for the 2019 conference.
