Welcome to ISACA London Chapter
As an independent, non-profit, global association, ISACA engages in the development, adoption and use of globally accepted, industry-leading knowledge and practices for information systems. Previously known as the Information Systems Audit and Control Association, ISACA now goes by its acronym only, to reflect the broad range of IT governance professionals it serves.
ISACA London chapter history
This year is a very important year for the chapter as we celebrate our 35th Anniversary. It’s a time for us to reflect on our past and look forward to the local chapter of the future.
Locally, the London Chapter was established in 1981 and has over 3000 members, who come from a wide cross-section of business including the accountancy and information systems professions, central and local government, the banking, manufacturing and service sectors and academia.
Our mission and focus for 2016-2017
Our chapter mission that has been endorsed by the London chapter board is to provide value to its members by focusing into the following dimensions:
To promote the education of and help expand the knowledge and skills of members in the inter-related fields of auditing, quality assurance, security and IT Governance;
To encourage a free exchange of IT Governance, quality assurance, and security techniques, approaches and problem solving by members;
To promote adequate communication to keep members abreast of current events in IT Governance, quality assurance, and security fields that can be of benefit to them and their employers;
To communicate to management, auditors, universities and to IS professionals the importance of establishing controls necessary to ensure the effective organisation and utilisation of data processing resources.
The strategy for 2017-18 and future will be published soon.
Members in the ISACA’s London Chapter volunteer program support the professional community and have the opportunity to drive the vision and development of new products that ISACA will be offering in future.
