The heat of summer is already upon us!

In addition to TS18 and Blue Teaming in May, we have a full slate of educational opportunities to include IT Auditing, Blockchain and COBIT5!!!

"Cyber Heroes - An Introduction to Blue Teaming" is being held on May 23 and 24th from 8:30am-400pm at the BlueCross BlueShield of SC Tower, presented by Peter Morin.  Sign up at

Our chapter continues to experience growth and is currently working to retain current members.  If you forgot to renew your membership, you may have been dropped from our official list, but we always welcome you back!  Renew your membership today and come to class at great discounts!

Our chapter hosted a weekend Chapter Leadership Conference April 20-22, 2018 in Charleston.  We had a great opportunity to showcase South Carolina and Charleston to chapter leaders from across the east coast.  Feedback I received is that attendees felt it well worth their time.  

As always, if you are interested in volunteering on the board, or at events, please let us know.

Tom Scott, SC Midlands ISACA Chapter President
