More than just a risk management association, the Information Systems Security Association (ISSA) is a non-profit international organization for information security practitioners an managers. I have been a member of this organization, and it has LOTS of great people involved in it. They have local chapters in most major cities in the U.S. They are great at bringing security professionals together to solve common issues in the industry, barter skill sets, teach new skills, train for IT certifications and promote products and services that involve risk management and/or security.
