Security Roundtables

To promote dialogue amongst those in the security community, the ISSA Security Luncheon will feature roundtables dedicated to various security discussion topics. As attendees arrive they self-select a table based on their interest. Over the meal a moderator will pose scripted questions provided to those at the table and moderate their discussion in a casual / informal format to allow like-minded security professionals to engage in dialogue. As the meal is completed, the event will end with an expert panel on stage who will provide their insights for the entire luncheon audience on the same discussion topics.

*Separate registration and payment is required to attend this luncheon. See our registration page for details

To promote education and preparedness in the community, the Capitol of Texas chapter of the ISSA invites security, technology, and management professionals to participate in a security war game exercise. All resources and materials used during the exercise will be provided to attendees to bring back to their organization to launch a program for conducting exercises internally.

  • On the stage will be participants with tech and management experience who will play various roles at a fictional company, and they will be led through a narrative series of events that result in a security breach.

  • Attendees will be given a dossier on their role as a customer or investor of the fictional company when they arrive, and they can submit feedback to the fictional company via their mobile device. Winning submissions as determined by audience vote will be used within the exercise and awarded prizes.

  • As a tabletop, there are no live systems, instead it's like a D&D game with hackers and techies instead of dragons and wizards, supplemented with synthesized policies and logs from the fictional systems projected for everyone to see.

  • After the event, there will be a panel of security experts who will conduct a "hot wash" de-brief, analyzing how well the participants performed, and to what extent our exercise accomplished its objectives.

If you would like to interact with the participants and have an opportunity to win prizes, don't forget to bring a charged mobile device.
