[Presentation 1 - TBD]


Blockchains are Coming! Forewarned is Forearmed!

Presentation:

From Bitcoin 101 to current Real World blockchain implementations Minnesota's most respected blockchain expert David Duccini will walk the audience through how we got to where we are now, and where we are going. He will slice through the hype and explain why this disruptive technology has the power to decentralize and make obsolete a lot of the current banking and wall street apparatus as well as its application in securing IOT devices in low trust environments.. This presentation will answer the questions: What is Bitcoin...really...? What is a blockchain? And when and where might a blockchain make sense? 
 
Speaker Bio:

David V Duccini is a well-regarded information security expert with real world “wire-to-web” e-commerce experience. In addition to having built an Internet Service Provider from scratch in the 1990’s he has been on a self-described “tour of duty” consulting with Fortune 50 banks, insurance companies, utilities, telecom, biomedical, and recently retail. Mr. Duccini holds advanced degrees in Software Engineering from the University of St. Thomas and an MBA from the Carlson School of Management. A serial entrepreneur, he has been involved in a half dozen startups. He joined the crypto-currency movement in late 2010 and two years ago launched 2Give.Info an innovative pro-social stakeholder based cryptocurrency network.

His latest venture is an equity crowdfunding platform taking advantage of the MNvest regulations linked to a blockchain based system named Silicon Prairie Online.

When he’s not at the keyboard, he can usually be found practicing his pilot skills moving rescue dogs around the midwest in his Cessna 152. He lives in St. Paul with his wife Gabrielle and their two mini-dachshunds, Ginger and Duke.

FAQs

Are non-members and guests welcome at meetings and events?

Yes, we welcome individuals at large from the security community to join us for any of our events. We simply ask that, after experiencing personally the value of our community at two events, individuals consider joining ISSA for the additional benefits that membership provides.

Why do we have to register to attend meetings and events?

Besides assisting the board with planning logistics for our events, registering for meetings and events, then checking in when you attend, provides you with self-service documentation you can print out to support your CPE credits if you are audited.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No, printed tickets are not necessary, you will still be able to check in.  However, having a printed or electronic copy of your ticket does speed up the check in process.

MN Chapter of ISSA

The Minnesota Chapter of ISSA (MN ISSA) serves the Minneapolis / St. Paul twin cities area, greater Minnesota and western Wisconsin. Our membership, over 250 strong and growing, is drawn from the multitude of large corporations, small businesses, government entities and educational institutions in the area. They span all levels of career growth, from students and entry-level to senior management, and cover all industries – finance, medical, government, education, retail, technology, services, and more. This depth of experience and breadth of knowledge provides a dynamic networking environment and a cadre of great individuals to draw from for education, guidance and thought leadership.

 

Our bi-monthly meetings, quarterly AfterHours events, and other activities provide local subject matter experts and national speakers, sponsor interaction, and networking opportunities. All events are open to ISSA members and non-members alike to provide educational opportunities for practitioners of all types. We simply ask that our guests, after they’ve personally experienced the value of our organization at two meetings or events, consider joining ISSA as full-fledged members – they gain not only membership in our local community, but all the benefits provided by ISSA international. Many organizations, recognizing the value, willingly sponsor their employees for continuing professional development.

 

Our award winning program has been recognized twice as ISSA Chapter of the Year (2002, 2016).

 

The Information Systems Security Association (ISSA) is a not-for-profit, international organization of information security professionals and practitioners. It provides educational forums, publications, and peer interaction opportunities that enhance the knowledge, skill, and professional growth of its members.

 

ISSA is the community of choice for international cyber security professionals dedicated to advancing individual growth, managing technology risk and protecting critical information and infrastructure.
