The Information Systems Security Association

I've just signed up for the 90 free trial membership of the ISSA. This gets you access to things like their journal and other member only content like webcasts (the last one being Dan Kaminsky and other speakers talking about the recent DNS problems) and other support material. The different chapters of the organisiation hold periodic meetings and talks on current security issues. Membership of proffesional organisations is generally a good idea and a useful thing to be able to stick on a CV so I think I'll probably sign up for a student membership of this once the trial runs out. I've also been looking in the getting a student membership of the British Computer Society, so I'll probably shell out for both of them once I'm back at uni and the good ol' student loan lands.

For info on the UK chapter of the ISSA have a look here.
