The ISSA Chattanooga Chapter (TN) serves the Chattanooga and surrounding Tennessee Valley area. We are located 2 hours south of Nashville and 2 hours north of Atlanta.  Our membership is growing, drawn from a multitude of large enterprises, medium to large businesses, government entities, healthcare organizations, and educational institutions in the Tennessee Valley area. Our chapter members span all levels of careers, from students to recent graduates to entry level to mid and senior management.  Our chapter represents SMEs from all industries – finance, healthcare, insurance, medical, government, education,  technology, services, and more. This depth of experience and breadth of knowledge provides a dynamic networking environment of great individuals to draw from for education, guidance, and thought leadership.


Our events feature national subject matter experts. We offer monthly virtual chapter events, quarterly face-to-face events, After-Hours events, and other activities. Many of our speakers are known workshop instructors, national presenters, researchers, and industry specialists in their field.   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, consider joining ISSA as full-fledged members.

The value that you will receive from our chapter is not just local value but national, and international. Through ISSA, you can connect with chapters and ISSA professionals all over the world while making Chattanooga chapter your home base.  There is no better venue to hone your knowledge, learn from the best of the best, network with peers, connect with mentors, and continue gaining professional development in the field of Cybersecurity.
