2016 has been a growing year for Cyber Security and the ISSA Puget Sound. Let’s get together and celebrate the past, present and the future of ISSA Puget Sound’s growth this Holiday season. Instead of the typical gathering, we’re opting for a cruise around Elliot Bay. Enjoy a cash bar, heavy appetizers, and conversation with the best security practitioners in the Puget Sound.

The boat only holds so many so you had better hurry up and sign up NOW!

Non-members are welcome to attend but let’s do the math. Membership into ISSA is $95(+ chapter dues of $20). Join before the holiday cruise, and you can register at the member price, a $40 difference. Become a member and immediately reap the benefits with $40 off the holiday ticket price. Membership into ISSA includes additional discounts to other security events and conferences throughout the year, like Secure World. Learn more about membership and join here.

About Crowdstrike:


CrowdStrike was founded in 2011 to fix a fundamental problem: The sophisticated attacks that were forcing the world’s leading businesses into the headlines could not be solved with existing malware-based defenses. Co-founders George Kurtz and Dmitri Alperovitch realized that a brand new approach was needed — one that combines the most advanced endpoint protection with expert intelligence to pinpoint the adversaries perpetrating the attacks, not just the malware.

Crowdstrike’s mission is simple: To stop breaches
