Local InfoSec Slack

RISE member Aaron McPhall has set up a Slack workspace for discussion of InfoSec related topics. Networking through local groups is a great way to build your career and maybe even solve a problem or two. Check out the New River Valley InfoSec slack at https://nrv-infosec.slack.com/.

The NRV InfoSec Slack channel is an independent resource and not run or moderated by RISE. We are providing this external link to members interested in building their local professional network.

If you are on the email list and haven’t received the test email or the October meeting reminder that goes out tonight, check your spam folder and drop us a line at the new address to let us know.
