Four great tracks will be offered: Women in Security, Healthcare Security and Privacy, Technical, and Government and Law Enforcement

LOS ANGELES, May 7, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- ISSA-LA's Eleventh Annual Information Security Summit, #SummitXI, is scheduled

to take place on May 16-17, 2019 right at the beach at the Annenberg Community Beach House in Santa Monica, California. Business leaders, Information Security Managers and Technical Professionals, and students in the Greater Los Angeles and Southern California can pick from two days of four concurrent tracks.

Two days of training kick things off on May 14-15, 2019 with world renowned trainers Jim Manico, Peter Kim, Kevin Cardwell, and Geoff Janjua teaching pen testing, application security, and red team hacking. Deploying Splunk? There is an introductory Splunk training, as well as an intermediate threat-hunting class using Splunk. There will also be two days of CTF (Capture the Flag) training and competition, and an all-day IoT Village.

Attendees can meet with their peers to discuss the challenges they face, share best practices they've employed, and the opportunities ahead of them as the cybersecurity landscape changes right under our feet. The opening reception under the stars at the historic Annenberg pool is a great place to make new friends, reconnect with old ones, and share the day's lessons.

"Tired of vendor and for-profit conferences and summits? We are too. These forums are all built by Information Security Leaders with only educational talks by researchers and actual practitioners. No vendor pitches here! We hit the subjects you grapple with and share solutions from your peers," says Richard Greenberg, SummitXI Chair and President of ISSA Los Angeles, and ISSA International Fellow.

Women in Security: The Los Angeles Chapter of ISSA has long been an ardent supporter of diversity in the field of information and cybersecurity. Our annual Security Summit events have always featured many women speakers, and each year we have presented a Women in Security panel. Our Women in Security Forum this year provides a focus for women in information security through talks, panel discussions, peer mentoring, workshops, and networking opportunities.

"There already is a shortage of qualified Cyber Security professionals to manage all of the confidential data out there, and it will just get worse," adds Greenberg. "We must be proactive and encourage all people to look to Cyber Security as a career choice. We hope to see you at Summit XI." Additional details for this forum can be found at

Government and Law Enforcement: The Government and Law Enforcement track will have esteemed CyberSecurity Law Enforcement professionals from the FBI, United States Secret Service (USSS), Los Angeles County Sheriff, Los Angeles County District Attorney Cyber Crime Unit, and will conclude featuring a keynote by Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey.

Healthcare Security and Privacy: The Healthcare Security and Privacy Forum will bring together Healthcare leaders in Security, Privacy, and Risk Management within government and private industry for two full days of collaboration, networking and presentations by leading Security, Privacy, Compliance and Risk Management professionals.

Attendees will be treated to a special guest speaker—Yun-Kyung (Peggy) Lee, Supervisory EOS at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. She will share guidance on risk assessments and what OCR will be looking for if you are under investigation or expecting an audit. Hear expert advice from Tanya Forsheit, Partner and Chair, Privacy & Data Security Group, as she discusses the rapidly evolving privacy legal landscape in the U.S. in 2019, in particular the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) taking effect on January 1, 2020. Adam Brand, Managing Director at PwC will talk about a huge topic in Healthcare, Medical Device Security. There will be a panel of Healthcare CISOs discussing and sharing their experiences on pressing topics, such as Risk Assessments, IoT, and Third party Risk.
