Fall is upon us, and Halloween is near. Thanksgiving and the holidays are right around the corner. As you know, the Chapter likes to do a service-based project around this time to give back to our community. This year we had to get a little creative due to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions. We have selected the Shared Housing Center's "Holiday Hero" program as our project. They offer housing and services to critically at-risk populations seeking to elevate themselves from homeless and near homeless situations to lifestyles of relative self-sufficiency. You can read more about this project here. They will be sending me a list of items that families are in need of. If you would like to donate, please reach out to me to coordinate your donation. We will then purchase items from their list and deliver to them in December. Please have any donations to me by December 1st.
In other news, I am a part of the Allstate reduction in force that has transpired recently. As such, my last day with them will be November 27th. It is my intention to continue serving in my capacity as President of NTIASIU in accordance with our Bylaws, Article III, Section 2 TERMS OF OFFICE, part B. Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me or any other member of the Executive Board.
This month, our speaker will be Gary Warner, he is with the Computer Forensics/Cyber Crime Department at the University of Alabama–Birmingham, as well as the Director of Intelligence for Darktower. His class is titled “Business Email Compromise and the Black Axe”. Unfortunately, we were not able to get this class certified for CE credit.
Our meeting this month will be in MS Teams and the invite will be sent out via email. We will meet on Tuesday, October 20th at 11:30am.
I look forward to seeing you all soon!
