About Our Chapter 


Welcome to the ISACA Illini Chapter. The aim of the Chapter is to sponsor local educational seminars 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 area. The Illini Chapter currently has experienced exceptional growth with over 420 members in Central Illinois (Bloomington, Champaign, Decatur, Peoria, and Springfield.) We are also one of the oldest chapters in the US.

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 recognized certifications in IT Audit, Security, Governance and Risk Management.

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.
