The aim of the Chapter is to sponsor local educational professional development sessions, conferences, forums and workshops, conducts regular chapter meetings, and help to further promote and elevate the visibility of the IS audit, control and security profession throughout the Brisbane area.
ISACA (previously the Information Systems Audit and Control Association) is a world wide association of IS governance professionals. The association currently focuses on assurance, security, and governance and provides globally recognised certification in assurance (Certified Information Systems Auditor), security (Certified Information Security Manager), and governance (Certified in the Governance of Enterprise IT).
The association is one of individual members, often the sole practitioner of information systems auditing, security, and/or governance in his or her company. The membership of the ISACA reflects a multiplicity of backgrounds and skills that make the information systems governance field challenging and dynamic.

Oceania CACS 2016 Conference
Between 11 and 13 September, the PNG and Brisbane Chapters were joint hosts of the Oceania CACS conference at the Gold Cost Convention and Exhibition Centre at Broadbeach.
The conference was attended by over 200 members, presenters, exhibitors and other guests. The Welcome Reception on Sunday night kicked things off on an upbeat note with over 120 guests networking and catchup with each other over a few drinks and finger food in the pool area of the Crowne Plaza.
Monday morning was an early start with the Women in IT breakfast and, despite the 7:00 am start, was well attended. Tony Hayes did a fantastic job as Master of Ceremonies introducing the first two key note speakers, ISACA’s CEO Matt Loeb followed by Andrew Johnson from the ACS. The conference dinner on Monday night wrapped up a very full first day starting with pre-dinner drinks (and a roving magician) in the Convention Centre foyer followed by dinner. Congratulations again to Anthony Rodrigues who received the 2016 Tony Hayes award from Tony himself. It was good to see several attendees venturing onto the dance floor after dinner.
The second day of the conference was very fully with presentations right up to 5:00 pm. The final event of the day was the draw of the Macbook Air sponsored by Adlib Software .
To all members that attended the conference, I hope you enjoyed the presentations and were able to network with other attendees as well as learn from the many speakers that presented during the two days. The feedback received has been very positive and we would like to thank everyone that attended for your support. The presentations are available on the conference website at this link.
We look forward to seeing everyone at CACS 2017 in Canberra.
