We are a diverse group of Information Security professionals with a Common Goal.
The Barbados Chapter of Information Systems Security Association, Inc. (ISSA) is seeking to provide the knowledge required to help individuals and organisations alike to protect their identities and entities by protecting their information assets. We understand that for individuals, protection of their identity must be of paramount importance as their lives can be adversely affected if their identity is compromised. For some organisations, information as a major resource and asset is second only to the human resources and is therefore critical to the very existence and viability of that organisation.
This website is intended to be a resource that the individual and organisation alike can find useful information to help develop an understanding of the many risks to their information. It is also designed to provide guidance to information security management practices and techniques to reduce these risks. The resources shared on this site is a result of the continuous efforts of a team of information security professionals from government and various private sector organisations working together under the Code of Ethics and mandate of the ISSA to promote an awareness and appreciation of information security management practices.
I trust that you will find the site useful and that it becomes one of your “favourites” and most visited sites. Please feel free to contact us and share your thoughts or sign up for our updates or to visit one of our chapter meetings.
