Volunteer of the Month

Dear Members,

Earlier this month we’ve announced a call for 2018 Wasserman Award Nominations. This is a time-honored tradition at our Chapter since 1978 and it is the most prestigious, coveted, and recognized award for our and perhaps other ISACA Chapters. The Joseph J. Wasserman Award is presented annually in recognition of Outstanding Achievement and Contribution to the field of Information Systems Audit, Control, Governance, Risk and Cyber Security.

Who was Joe Wasserman? According to his friends and colleagues, he’d never held an officer or a Board member role, however his contributions to the profession and the Chapter are monumental. As Steve Ross (ISACA NYM President 1979, Wasserman Award 1988) recollects, Joe was a pioneer in IS Auditing, and perhaps the first to use computer to audit data maintained in electronic form. For EDPA New York Chapter (as we were known at the time), Joe was an entire Program Committee – idea generator, relationship manager, and an engine that makes things happen. Tragically, Joe has died at age of 46, but his work is continued by generations of new IT Auditors and Chapter Leaders.

The roster of the Wasserman Award recipients reads as Who’s Who in Information Systems Audit, Control, Governance, Risk and Cyber Security. I had a privilege to meet many of them (and present the Award to several.) We are fortunate and honored to have continued contributions and support from the past award recipients, Michael Cangemi, Steve Ross, William Murray, John Lainhart, Lily Shue, Emil D’Angelo, Peter Wild, Marios Damianides, Rob Stroud, George Hertzberg, Charles Blauner, and Ron Ross.

At our 2018 Annual Gala & Wasserman Award Dinner on June 28th we will welcome the newest member to this prestigious roster of leaders of our profession. Please mark your calendar and plan to attend.

Thank you,

Alexander Abramov,

President, ISACA New York Metropolitan Chapter
