February Meeting Topic:  Project Managers are Cybersecurity Practitioners Too!

    Presented By:  Jim Perkins


Join Uptown members in learning the four principles of cybersecurity that project managers can apply to any project, as well as some tips for better personal cybersecurity.  Attendees from organizations of all sizes will leave with a better understanding of how to apply the principles of cybersecurity within the context of their business and projects in order to better protect the critical data of their organizations and customers.  

Jim Perkins serves as an Information Securty Manager at Novant Health.  He has been an integral part of the Novant Health cybersecurity program, leading security operations for the organization.  Jim has worked in the security industry for 12 years, including over three years of cybersecurity experience.  He holds a Bachelor's of Science Degree in History from the United States Military Academy, as well as a Project Management Professional (PMP) certification. 

Hope to see you at the meeting!

Chapter Meeting Presentations 
As a means of helping chapter and local community members who are certified as a Project Management Professional (PMP®) satisfy the continuing education requirements for re-certification, PMI Metrolina Chapter arranges its monthly meeting schedule to allow a 1.5 hour PDU training session to be incorporated into its normal meeting. 

Topics presented during these sessions are designed to not only satisfy the PDU requirement for re-certifying as a PMP, but to also provide wide appeal to people involved in project management regardless of whether or not they are certified PMPs. The 1.5-hour sessions meet the educational requirements to qualify for 1.5 PDU credits for maintaining PMP® certification or to meet the requirement for attending 35 hours of formal project management education prior to applying to sit for the PMP® exam. 

The sessions are open to all.
