2019 ISACA Spring Training: IT Audit and Security Climate Change
through Wilsonville-Clackamas Community College

2019 ISACA Spring Training

IT Audit and Security Climate Change: The Risks of Shifting Technologies and a Political Landscape

Advancements in emerging technologies have accelerated significantly with the reality of automated intelligence (AI), robotics and now Blockchain technologies. Only a few years ago, companies were wrestling with the emergence of social media and integration of mobile strategies for retail. Fast forward and mobile delivery with social presence is now the norm, and retail is fundamentally digital. The next wave of emerging technologies promise bigger shifts than the last wave; however several of these technologies will need to move beyond proof of concept use cases for companies to successfully embrace.

Will the political environment be helpful or hurtful to industry and business in 2019? Will cutting edge technologies shift into mainstream reality and create broader adoption beneficial in reigniting the markets? Will employees remain optimistic within a generally low unemployment environment?

Come attend ISACA’s Spring Training Event and find out what industry leaders are thinking and doing to maximize the benefits of emerging technologies amid the shifting quicksand of the political and technology environment.

Sales and Marketing Workshop - Sales Training for those who want to hone in their personal skills
Oregon Bioscience Incubator (OBI) / OTRADI

There are many aspects to creating and developing a sales team. They range from: do you even want an in-house team? To: how will you train and monitor said team, in house or not? What characteristics will make a good salesperson? The answer to the last one might surprise you.

Once you have figured out who you want. Then you must know what you want them to say. The key to any sales process is just that, the sales process. How and who to prospect, how to qualify said prospects, the presentation, the close and of course the follow up. All are critical aspects to getting sales results.

Finally, what opportunities does your sales team present? What type of information and customer feedback can be gleaned? What benefits can be achieved by having a salesperson on board from the outset of product design?

Seating for this workshop is limited

Tech Academy Portland Meetup - Intro to JavaScript: A Free Coding Class at The Tech Academy
The Tech Academy

We run a code school. We hear from a lot of people we talk to that they're not sure whether they're interested in a job in the tech field, because they don't know enough about it. Sometimes, they've even been told that "programming is hard to learn."

At The Tech Academy, we work hard to break down the barriers between people and technology. We think that, with the right approach, anyone can learn to code - and whether you end up working in technology or not, the principles behind coding are useful in a lot of areas.

The Tech Academy is offering a free course on Introduction to JavaScript. JavaScript is universally recognized as a foundational language. It is present in every platform imaginable: like browsers, mobile, and desktop applications.

This course is perfect for people with little to no experience in programming who are curious about a career in software development.

In this practical, hands-on class, you'll learn the basics of these popular technologies - and along the way, you should find out for yourself whether technology and coding are something worth looking into a bit more deeply.

Please Note:
---Make sure to bring your laptop, as this will be a hands on learning process where you get to actually write your own code. If you don't have a laptop, no worries, you will be able to use one of ours.
---An RSVP is needed to guarantee a seat in the class, though we may have a few open seats for last minute attendees.

From loading strategies and rendering when dealing with slow connections to creating clever UI-components to use as wrappers, he'll be sharing tips and tricks you won't want to miss.

10 minutes -- We'll quickly tally the votes and announce who's doing what in at the Batchery.com demo day next month. Share a drink and snack with us - we'll stay around to chat.

PDXWIT INSIGHT: How To Cultivate Feminine and Masculine Synergy At Work
Quantum Spatial (Located in the Commonwealth Bldg)

Registration through Eventbrite [https://www.eventbrite.com/e/pdxwit-insight-how-to-cultivate-feminine-and-masculine-synergy-at-work-tickets-60325258472] is required to gain entry to this event

In pursuit of equal rights and opportunities, we have tended to see men as the “haves” and women as the “have-nots.”

Whether or not we dare admit it, this simplistic view fuels an adversarial dynamic across genders.

By shifting from fighting for our rights to standing for the common good, we can continue to elevate gender related conversations towards greater partnership and synergy.

In this presentation you will:

• Uncover the root cause for inner world conflicts and outer world discontent in your dynamics among genders.

• Discover the guiding principle that nourishes more effective collaboration.

• Learn a simple and powerful tool to improve your relationship dynamics and increase effectiveness at work— immediately.

Agenda:

5:30 p.m. - Doors open

5:45 p.m. - Introduction

6:00 p.m. - Presentation Begins

7:00 p.m. - Presentation Ends

7:30 p.m. - Event Ends

Event FAQ

Q: Will there be gender neutral restrooms?

A: Yes.

Q: Is the space ADA accessible?

A: Yes.

Q: Will there be food and drink at this event?

A: Yes.

Q: What is the parking situation?

A: No, we have no parking - we're located in the heart of downtown so we'd recommend people bike or take public transit. There are parking garages near us, plus limited street parking, if people need to drive.

Q: Is there any special information that might help me find the entrance?

A: The entrance to the Commonwealth Building is on 6th avenue, in between Washington and Stark (labelled correctly on Google Maps as well). Folks will need to take the elevator up to the 8th floor, and from there we will have the doors to our suite open so that there are no auto-locking door situations.

Q: Is there secured bike parking?

A: No, our bike storage is unfortunately not accessible for the public. There are many bike racks located around our building though.

Q: Should I consider using public transportation?

A: Yes, we are close to several bus and max stops! This would be a great option for people.

Q: Can I bring my dog?

A: No, we ask that you leave your furry friend home.

Purpose:

PDXWIT is a community-based non-profit organization. Our purpose is to strengthen the Portland women in tech community by offering educational programs, partnerships, mentorships, resources and opportunities. We are unifying a supportive environment for current and potential women in tech, all of whom are committed to helping each other. Our goal is to bring together and empower women in tech and to encourage others to pursue tech careers. This is our step towards reducing the gender imbalance in the industry and addressing the current negative effects of that imbalance on women.

Our events are inclusive. ALL people who support our purpose are welcome.

IFD Master Workshop – Entrepreneurship For Designers
Wacom Experience Center

IFD Master Workshop – Entrepreneurship for Designers, with designer Matthew A. Rhoades.

An entrepreneur is commonly defined as: “A person who organizes and operates a business or businesses, taking on greater than normal financial risks in order to do so”. But what does entrepreneurship really mean for individuals and businesses? Being an entrepreneur sounds amazing, but in reality, it’s a huge challenge.

This class is aimed at designers who want to form their own design agency, develop and sell their own products, or launch a start-up. Our 2-hour workshop covers how to build a business and marketing plan and how to build a team. You’ll learn about using internal and external resources, networking, operations, and the idea of how to work “on the cheap” to get the most out of everything you do.

Matthew A. Rhoades is one of the most accomplished and respected design minds in the Pacific Northwest. As a veteran of several global design studios and former Nike Global Creative Director, Matthew’s award-winning career encompasses more than two decades, 40+ patents, 6 world records, and multiple global design awards. Achievement highlights include an IDEA Gold Metal, a Newsweek “Product of the Year,” and designing the Trek Y-Bike, named “Third most influential mountain bike of all time.” In addition to his work as an industrial designer, he holds an MBA in Entrepreneurial Management and New Product Development and has spent over 18 years as an adjunct professor, faculty member and speaker. He is currently a De Tao Master and Professor of Strategy Design Innovation at the De Tao Group Masters Academy in Shanghai. His experience transcends traditional industrial design products, encompassing digital (UI/UX), brand strategy, cutting-edge innovation, new business strategy, and overall design excellence.

This event will take place at the Wacom Experience Center.

This workshop is produced and hosted by Inside Fashion Design - www.insidefashiondesign.net

CNPDX June: Machine Learning and Example Kube Apps
Autodesk

Autodesk is hosting us for the first time for an application-centric meetup! Learn how to build Kubernetes projects. First we'll show you an end-to-end example Kubernetes application using Helm, and then we'll show you a Machine Learning/NLP project.

PLEASE RSVP on Meetup.com if you have an account for food ordering reasons.

==========================

Devstats: An example end-to-end Kubernetes application.

Presenter: Josh Berkus, Red Hat

You may know DevStats as a repository of contributor statistics for Kubernetes (devstats.cncf.io), but you're about to find out that it is also a great demonstration case of migrating a complete application to orchestrated microservices. Our community has lacked solid, production-quality, end-to-end, all-open-source application examples, so we decided to make DevStats into one.

=========================

NLP for fun and profit. Story of end to end machine learning project on Kubernetes.

Presenters: Michał Jastrzębski, Hamel Husain, Github

Abstract: Machine learning makes waves again, we are being constantly amazed by new feats neural networks can achieve. Models, while important, are a small part of the whole machine learning system. The infrastructure it runs on, the dataset itself and data cleaning/preprocessing pipeline are often omitted in news articles, but they are critical components of any machine learning project. Infrastructure, in particular, is a hard problem and there are few good examples of running cloud-native machine learning. In GitHub, we are building a full platform for machine learning based on Kubernetes. In this talk we will walk through such end to end project, one anyone can replicate at home (code is open source and data is available), we will tackle hard natural language problem - automatically labeling GitHub issues as bug or feature. We will deep dive into our Kubernetes use case and walk through different components we have used for every step of ML project lifecycle - from data preprocessing to serving model for the application.

TA3M Happy Hour and Privacy Game Night
Jackknife

Please note that this meeting is a special event in addition to our regular 3rd Monday meeting!

Join us for a happy hour, and play "Strategic Privacy by Design: The Game"!

Based on the book by the same name, this card game allows players to attempt to design a new service with privacy in mind. Use tactic cards to protect information and prevent violations, and ultimately, avoid the consequences on your product when it is released. Play cooperatively (and try to earn 'not consequences' for the team) or competitively (and try to earn less consequences than other players).

The game was developed by R. Jason Cronk, author of "Strategic Privacy by Design". He spoke to our group about privacy by design (PbD) back in May of 2017 and is back in town for another visit. Come out for an evening of fun with other privacy-minded people, and test your skills at designing with privacy in mind!

Speaker bio:

With more than fifteen years of experience in the Information Technology industry and as a licensed attorney in Florida, Robert Jason Cronk is a creative and analytical thinker, able to traverse the realms of business, law, and technology. In 2004, while working in the information security department of Verizon, Mr. Cronk decided to make his long standing personal interest in information privacy a career choice. In 2006, he entered Florida State University School of Law where he focused his research on privacy law issues, including authoring a white paper on the intersection of privacy and public records for the Florida First Amendment Foundation. After graduating, with honors, he earned his CIPP/US, was admitted to practice in Florida and has become an active member of the privacy professionals community through his involvement in the International Association of Privacy Professionals. He has since been awarded the Certified Information Privacy Technologist (CIPT), Certified Information Privacy Manager (CIPM) and Fellow of Information Privacy designations by the IAPP. In October of 2018, he released his first book, "Strategic Privacy by Design" and has developed a corresponding game.

Mr. Cronk currently writes, blogs and speaks on topics such as privacy and data security law, privacy by design, privacy engineering, privacy enhancing technologies (PETs), digital currencies, and privacy in public records. His twitter handle is @privacymaverick and his blog can be found at http://www.privacymaverick.com.

Women Who Code Portland - 5th Anniversary Celebration: Leading with Intent
New Relic

It's hard to believe, but Women Who Code Portland is closing in on five years in Portland. We are so thrilled to celebrate this incredible milestone with you. Join us on Monday, June 17th at New Relic for our 5th Anniversary Celebration, an evening of networking, inspiring speakers, giveaways, and delicious food and drinks.

The theme of the event is "Leading with Intent." It is what we as an organization have aimed to do over the last five years. It's also a theme embodied by our speakers. Our five panelists are all very successful women in engineering, design, and security; and they have also spent their time giving back to others, by creating communities that helped other women and underrepresented minorities enter and stay in the tech industry.

PDX Women In Technology (PDXWIT) June Happy Hour
WeWork Pioneer

Registration through Eventbrite [https://www.eventbrite.com/e/pdx-women-in-technology-pdxwit-june-happy-hour-tickets-60902123892] is required to gain entry to this event

Join us for June Happy Hour at WeWork Pioneer Place, hosted by Green Bits!

In our aim to be an organization that supports and empowers women, non-binary folks and people of color, we want to address racism head on. One way that racism can be expressed is through lack of recognition of indigenous lands and erasure of indigenous history. We are moving towards incorporating land acknowledgement into the introduction at all of our events and will be dedicating our June happy hour to providing some additional context on how we will be doing this.

While the event is primarily intended for networking, we will have a short segment at 5:30 p.m. to share important announcements and showcase members of our community:

A representative from our host company Green Bits will share what they do and what job opportunities are available at the company.

We will be joined by Court Morse who will share information about Portland’s indigenous lands and history.

During the event, we’ll have more to do than free-form networking:

An Activity Table where people can get creative. This is a fantastic way to meet others if large groups are not your thing. If you have trouble finding it, look for Meg Aul, our Event Activities Director.

A section for job seekers and those hiring, to ensure people get connected.

Agenda:

4:30 p.m. - Doors open

5:30 p.m. - Introductions, Announcements + Lightening Speakers

6:30 p.m. - Event ends

PDX Women In Technology (PDXWIT) Self Care and Mitigating Workplace Stress
Cambia Health Solutions

Registration through Eventbrite [https://www.eventbrite.com/e/pdx-women-in-technology-pdxwit-self-care-and-mitigating-workplace-stress-tickets-60954585807] is required to gain entry to this event

Workplace stress is increasing across the board, and there’s plenty of research and data to prove it. According to the American Institute of Stress, "80% of workers feel stress on the job; nearly half say they need help in learning how to manage stress, and 42% say their coworkers need such help."

Yet most us have a hard time knowing where to begin, especially when it comes to influencing our company culture. Finding agency and resolve for self-care is priority number one; connecting our personal needs to organizational transformation is the ultimate goal. So where DO we begin?

Join us June 25th for a panel discussion and action-oriented evening on tackling this complex, critical topic. Co-hosted by workplace wellness consultancy Health Equity Partners, come ready to listen, learn, share and—we hope—leave inspired and motivated to make changes you need both for yourself, your company, and your community. Added bonus: raffle prizes to get you feeling good.

We have monitors, mice, keyboards, and miscellanous other perifpherals, so generally all you need to bring is the box.

PLUG Linux Clinic
Free Geek

The Linux Clinic meets once a month on the third Sunday from 1 - 5 pm at Free Geek, 1731 SE 10th Avenue, Portland, 97214.

Bring your Linux computer that is being a brat and we'll teach it some manners. Or bring your computer that has some evil operating system on it and we'll send it home with a shiny, clean Linux distro. Or just come and look over shoulders to see what Linux is all about.

If you already know Linux well, the Clinic is also a good place to learn how to help users troubleshoot problems. It's excellent training for tech support work in Linux.

We have monitors, mice, keyboards, and miscellanous other perifpherals, so generally all you need to bring is the box.

There will also be coffee and people usually bring munchies as well. After all, you can't do computers on an empty tummy.
