Rich Larkins – President
A lifelong troubleshooter with over 25 years experience, Rich spends his days creating solutions that solve impossible problems in network communication. Rich derives great entertainment value from watching Internet Protocol packets fly by his Wireshark screen at Gigabit speed. An upright Bass gathers dust in the corner of his living room recalling the bygone days when he had time to actually play the Jazz music he loves.
As President, I will continue to improve the membership experience through providing a comfortable environment and engaging topics for our quarterly meetings. I will partner with other organizations to help improve the Security Professional community in the Phoenix market through cooperative learning, professional networking, and mentoring opportunities. Phoenix has some of the most talented and dedicated Security Professionals in the country. It is time to start sharing that talent and communicating that dedication to the next generation of Security Professionals and the community at large.
Jerry Crow – Vice President
As a member of ISSA’s Phoenix Chapter for more than 12 years, Jerry joined when the chapter was founded. He was an advisor to the executive board for many of those years, and indirectly contributed to the mission of the chapter for many more. He wants to contribute more directly to the expansion of our field and chapter by serving as your Vice President. His active involvement with ISSA for over a decade, along with his security involvement with sister organizations in Phoenix, provide strong foundations for success as vice-president of the Phoenix Chapter of ISSA.
In leadership positions, Jerry serves as a Director on the Board of the Arizona Telecommunications and Information Council (ATIC) and on the Board of the Arizona Cloud Security Alliance. He’s experienced in what it takes to successfully build a community to benefit members.

Jerry Crow is an independent consultant specializing in digital forensics and cloud security. Jerry is a dedicated professional who is fully committed to ISSA. He looks forward to serving members in our growing field and community.
I believe that the future success of ISSA Phoenix and all of the other security groups in Phoenix will be best served by strong collaboration among the groups. I have extensive contacts through the IT security arena in Phoenix and will utilize those contacts to further the mission of ISSA Phoenix.

In 2011, Joseph founded an incident response company, CyberSponse, which helps organizations mitigate risk, protect records, and lower compliance costs.
