About the Computer Security Institute (CSI)
Because the world and security have changed over time, the Computer Security Institute (CSI) has evolved over time as well.
CSI served as the original and leading educational membership organization for information security professionals for over 30 years.
Our mission is simple: to provide you with the resources with which to
succeed both in your job and in your career. At the forefront of security trends and research, CSI is uniquely qualified to provide the practical, yet often undiscovered, insight, strategies and trends that will protect your organization and move you ahead.
If you're an information security professional or are aspiring to be one, then CSI is here to help you succeed.
How Can We Help You Succeed?
We believe that the best way to succeed in your professional career is by getting peer guidance in developing strategies that fit you and your organization's specific goals and challenges. Here at CSI, we focus on three critical areas of success: Education, Community, and Research.
Stay ahead of the curve by reading our monthly publications, keeping your employees informed with our awareness tools, participating in our webcasts, and getting breaking headline news updates from our sister publications, Dark Reading and Information Week.
Network with your information security peers by joining our awareness peer group, attending our CSI conferences, and interacting in our CSI blogs and forums.
Challenge your mind by doing research in our CSI Resource Center, which houses insightful articles on topics ranging from end-user awareness and risk management to identity management and virtualization.
