Schaumburg, IL, USA (15 August 2018) – Business technology professionals in Madison, Wisconsin, USA, have formed a new chapter of ISACA, a global professional association serving the IT audit, risk, governance and security professions. The ISACA Madison Chapter has more than 115 members and joins more than 220 chapters around the globe. Worldwide, ISACA has more than 130,000 members in 188 countries.
ISACA Madison Chapter President John Krogulski said the chapter is the first of its kind near Madison. According to Krogulski, Madison has seen strong growth in IT security, government, insurance and healthcare, so ISACA will be an important resource and opportunity for local technology professionals.
“Security and assurance are becoming higher priorities for these agencies,” said Krogulski. “As such, many are looking for information and networking that can be provided by a local ISACA chapter.”
Madison also is home to several higher learning institutions, including the flagship University of Wisconsin campus and Madison College.
“In addition to employing professionals who are excellent candidates for ISACA membership, this area also has many students in many disciplines, which makes an ISACA student chapter another possibility,” said Krogulski. “The size of the workforce that would have an interest in joining ISACA and participating in a local chapter is projected to continue to grow over the next five to 10 years.”
Among the resources the chapter can help connect local members to are ISACA’s certifications:
- Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA)
- Certified in Risk and Information Systems Control (CRISC)
- Certified Information Security Manager (CISM)
- Certified in the Governance of Enterprise IT (CGEIT)
- As well as Cybersecurity Nexus (CSX)
“The Madison Chapter offers the opportunity to network and learn from local peers on matters that are relevant to local organizations, as well as the ability to help each other grow our respective careers through training and sound advice,” said Krogulski.
ISACA offers credentialing, education, guidance and community for IT security, assurance, risk, audit, and governance professionals. The association established its Cybersecurity Nexus (CSX) platform to address the global cybersecurity skills shortage and to help organizations develop strong cyber security workforces. ISACA also offers COBIT, a business framework that helps organizations govern and manage their information and technology.
