  Dear Members,

One of my mentors and friends, Brian Barnier wrote to me recently: “I’ve been talking with a number of chapters recently and realized your term is nearly half over. How are you doing with your objectives?”

It was good question and I thought I would share the answer about several objective areas with the entire membership who’d elected me and whom I serve.

The last year was a year of many accomplishments in several areas:

1. Producing innovative programs - we are reaching to the US, State, and NYC Governments to offer our help in talent development and to promote their cybersecurity agenda. We have held attendance record-breaking event to educate membership and offer support to 2017 Presidential Executive Order on Cybersecurity; we were a co-sponsor of the 2018 International Conference on Cyber Security (ICCS) produced by FBI and Fordham University and 2018 IIA Westchester / DOJ cybersecurity conference.

We are supporting Law Enforcement Alliance for Digital Evidence Response (LEADER) via our challenge grant; we will match 100% corporate and individual donations up to $5k to this organization: https://www.leaderresponse.com/. We have produced innovative conference to present emerging cyber security technologies.

2. Strengthening relationships with ISACA and other organizations – we are partnering with ISACA on several strategic programs; we are producing joint events with IIA New York; we’ve strengthened our relationships with IIA Westchester / Fairfield and (ISC)2 CT Chapters.

3. Improving Board governance and team work – we have enhanced and implemented a robust Strategic Planning process; to help develop leadership, improve succession planning, and increase transparency, we have significantly expanded roles of Officers; we have invested in team building and strengthened mentoring program for Board Directors.

For the next year we will continue to work hard to offer innovative and successful programs to our membership; develop our Chapter leadership; expand our partnerships with technology professional associations and relationships with the government agencies, academia, and corporate sponsors.

Alexander Abramov,

President, ISACA New York Metropolitan Chapter
