The OpenBSD workshop held last April 16 & 23, 2016 at the TIP Quezon City campus was a resounding success!  It was attended by more than 40 ISSA PH professionals and JISSA chapter members!  The 2-Saturday workshop was conducted by Subject Matter Experts Messrs. Glenn Faustino and Joel Griego, and they shared experience and knowledge on OpenBSD installation, set up and configuration, usage and operations, and package installation for desktop and server environments.  Thanks to all the participants, organizers and the host institution for supporting this event!  See you in future ISSA PH activities!


Please take note of the changes.

ISSA PH was a proud partner of the 1st Rizal Information Technology Convergence Conference held on 10-Dec-2015 at the Ynares Center, Antipolo City. The conference was organized by the Guild of Information Technology Students in Rizal province, and was participated in by more than 800 students, teachers and guests from all schools and universities in the province.  One of the speakers was the ISSA PH President John Ruero who delivered a talk on Information Security: What you don't know will hurt you.
