    25th Colloquium Online - $200 registration

    As we navigate process of moving the Colloquium online an important planning consideration has been the pricing of the program. As a result of our review, we have simplified the cost of registration to $200 per person. This will support the costs of the event, as well as provide a modest budget to keep the organization functioning until the next Colloquium. The original online price included additional A/V and other cost considerations to host online sessions at the former venue.

    We will initiate refund adjustments to those who have previously registered at earlier pricing models.

    As a member supported NPO, if you wish to donate the difference to CISSE, we would be grateful for this support. If considering, please email Andrew at abelon@thecolloquium.org.

    For those who will be awaiting a refund, we appreciate your patience. It will take us a bit of time to process, as we need to complete the refunds manually, and there are quite a few.

    Thank you for your support and contributions to Cybersecurity Education. We look forward to engaging with you this October.

    Refund adjustments will be issued for earlier pricing models. To inquire, please email events@thecolloquium.org.

    25th Colloquium - Virtual Conference

    The CISSE Board has made the decision that the 25th Colloquium will move to an online format. This decision is based on concerns raised by the significant increase in cases of the COVID-19 Delta variant, increasing breakthrough cases, increased cases in the Nashville area, and continuing restrictions on non-essential travel for colleges and universities.

    The Colloquium will be held at the originally scheduled dates on 4-6 October 2021. The schedule will follow the Central Time Zone. The cost of the online registration will be $400. A refund of the difference will be issued to those who have registered for the in-person rate.

    Naturally, there are a number of details which still need to be resolved, we are working to do so as quickly as possible.

    Colonel Isaac B. Martinez began his military career as an ROTC cadet at the University of Northern Colorado (UNC) and earned his commission in May of 1996 as a Second Lieutenant in the Military Police Corps. His education includes, a Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice from UNC, a Masters of Education and Human Resources Studies from Colorado State University. His military education includes the Military Police Basic Course, Military Police Advance Course, US Combined Arms and Staff School, and Information Management Systems Manger Course. In 2017 he graduated from the US Army War College with a Master's degree in Strategic Studies. Colonel Martinez, currently serves as the Army National Guard (ARNG) Chief Information Officer (CIO) and Director of the Command, Control, Communications & Computers (C4) Systems Directorate. Colonel Martinez provides direction and guidance to align the ARNG Staff IT portfolio with the Director of Army National Guard strategic priorities. Isaac is charged with setting policy and synchronizing initiatives through coordination with the Army and Joint National Guard.

    His early assignments included duties as a platoon leader for the 220th Military Police Company. His first call to action was leading a security detail at Columbine High School after the tragic shootings in 1999. Martinez next served as the Deputy Provost Marshal in Tazar, Hungary from 1999 to 2000, as part of Operation Joint Forge. Shortly after returning home, he led the Colorado Army National Guard's statewide force protection mission to establish airport security immediately following the Sept. 11th attacks in 2001. The following year, Martinez was chosen as The Adjutant General's Aide and just over a year later he assumed command of the 220th Military Police Company and deployed in support of OPERATION IRAQI FREEDOM. His unit was the first Colorado National Guard to support the war effort as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003. Upon his return, Captain Martinez was assigned as the 891st Troop Command Battalion Logistics Officer (S4). He was recalled to serve as the commander of the 220th MP Co in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and guided to New Orleans in 2005.

    In 2010, Colonel Martinez was serving as the Executive Officer for the 193rd Military Police Battalion, when they mobilized in support of OPERATION ENDURING FREEDOM. After the deployment in 2012, he was chosen to represent the Colorado National Guard at the State of the State in Colorado's capitol as a special military attendee and personally recognized by Governor John Hicklenlooper. Colonel Martinez would later command the 193rd Military Police Battalion in 2013. Soon after taking command, he immediately was called to support the largest flood relief effort in Colorado history. After command, in Feb 2018, Colonel Martinez also supported response and recovery for the Colorado Department of Transportation Ransomware Cyber Attack. He served as the Liaison Officer to the Incident Command during a significant State cyber response force. Colonel Martinez has recently worked with Colorado Secretary of State with providing cyber security support during three separate Federal elections.

He has earned the Combat Action Badge, German Armed Forces Efficiency Badge and Order of the Marechaussee.

This is an opportunity to nominate an individual who you consider to be recognizably influential on the national stage in cybersecurity education. It is important to consider that your nominee’s accomplishments in the field should reflect a national impact reach.

    Academic Leadership Award

    The Colloquium awards the Academic Leader of the Year Award to an educator whose actions have distinguished them from among their peers.  This individual is a person who goes above and beyond helping their students to academic success, while positively impacting the educational community nationally, and in some cases internationally.
