RRC ISACA Student Goup
The Red River College ISACA Student Group (RRC-ISG) is for students who are interested in information security (infosec). Our main goal is to help our members navigate a career in infosec, and to provide them with opportunities for professional and technical growth. We are an official affiliate of the local ISACA Winnipeg Chapter.
Information security, often shortened to infosec, is an umbrella term for a variety of topics that revolve around the development, management and audit of secure systems. A more professional definition would describe it as a process that ensures that within the enterprise, information is protected against disclosure to unauthorized users , improper modification, and non-access when required (Source: ISACA).
Develop a Professional Network
Connect with fellow students who are also interested in information security, audit systems, information systems, cybersecurity, enterprise governance of IT, or IT risk management. Meet security professionals and connect with industry leaders face to face at our events.
Stand Out to Recruiters
Show initiative to future employers through involvement. Become a leader by participating in event organization, or by joining our student board. Familiarize yourself with infosec topics by attending our events, and gain a deeper understanding of the type of career you would like to pursue.
Obtain Mentorship from Experienced Practitioners
Gain insight on a wide range of infosec careers from industry professionals. The need for information security continues to grow, and infosec professionals are in high demand. The industry benefits from cultivating young talent.
The RRC-ISG Learn shell is available to all current students, and will be our main method of posting announcements and sharing other documents. To obtain access to the Learn shell, please contact a board member with your student number and academic email.
