Information Services Support Group (ISSG)

MnCCC’s Information Services Support Group (ISSG) members are IT, MIS, IS managers and staff throughout the state. This group provides an amazing pool of resources!  We share knowledge, assist each other with software and hardware challenges, and work together to find cooperative solutions. The ISSG Group spends time training and developing cooperative IT solutions for counties. Some of our past training sessions include Microsoft Reporting Services, SQL, Crystal Reports, How to Hack ‘em So You Can Defend Them, Security Training, Packet Level Training with Laura Chappell, and more!

ISSG Liaisons are elected annually to work with both ISSG and the user groups to help share technical information and planning for projects.
