ISACA appreciates the expertise and insights provided by all who volunteer their time and knowledge. Our volunteers have helped ensure ISACA continues to be a leading global provider of knowledge, certifications, community, advocacy and education on information systems (IS) assurance and security, enterprise governance and management of IT, and IT-related risk and compliance. To publically recognize our outstanding volunteers, ISACA’s Board of Directors has established several awards that honor individuals who exemplify ISACA’s values, purpose and leadership.
