 Robert Clyde of Provo, Utah, Re-elected International Vice President of ISACA 

ISACA Announces 2015-2016 Board of Directors

Rolling Meadows, IL, USA (8 June 2015)—ISACA, a global association serving 140,000 information systems professionals in 180 countries, announced its 2015-2016 Board of Directors in Brussels, Belgium, today. Robert Clyde, CISM, managing director of Clyde Consulting LLC, Provo, Utah, was re-elected international vice president of ISACA.

Founded in 1969, ISACA provides knowledge, standards, networking and career development for information systems audit, assurance, cybersecurity, risk, privacy and governance professionals. ISACA offers the Cybersecurity Nexus (CSX), a comprehensive set of cybersecurity resources, and COBIT, a business framework to govern enterprise technology.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed serving on the ISACA International Board of Directors this past year, and I am honored to be able to serve again this year,” said Clyde. “We are living in a world where many leaders feel that the sophistication of the attackers is outpacing that of the defenders. Part of this is due to a worldwide, massive skills shortage of cyber security and assurance professionals. ISACA is in a unique position to provide the necessary education, skills, networking opportunities and credentials to turn the tide, and achieve a higher degree of trust and confidence in our rapidly evolving cyber world.”

In addition to his role as managing director of Clyde Consulting LLC, Clyde is a director on the board of Zimbra, an industry leader in community and collaboration software, and a director on the board of Xbridge Systems, a leader in data discovery software. He chairs a board-level ISACA working group and has served as a member of ISACA’s Strategic Advisory Council, Conference and Education Board and the IT Governance Institute (ITGI) Advisory Panel. He is a frequent speaker at ISACA conferences and for the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD). He also serves on the industry advisory council for the Management Information Systems (MIS) Department of Utah State University.

Previously, he was CEO of Adaptive Computing, which provides workload management software for some of the world’s largest cloud, HPC, and Big Data environments. Prior to that, he was chief technology officer (CTO) at Symantec and a co-founder of Axent Technologies.

“ISACA is fortunate to have Rob serve for the second consecutive year on the International Board of Directors,” said 2015-2016 ISACA International President Christos Dimitriadis, Ph.D., CISA, CISM, CRISC. “His experience and vision will help ISACA expand its mission to serve professionals around the world.”
