Welcome to the ISACA Virginia Chapter!
Founded in 1977, the Virginia Chapter serves over 1900 members across the entire state by providing training opportunities through chapter meetings and seminars; exam review courses; resource sharing; advocacy; and professional networking on a local level. The Chapter is an all-volunteer organization dependent on its members for leadership. Click the link on the left panel to see the chapter by-laws. This chapter is run by volunteers who are ISACA members nominated through ISACA Annual General Meeting (AGM). ISACA members' participations in running the chapter are highly encouraged.
ISACA (previously the Information Systems Audit and Control Association) is a worldwide association of IS governance professionals. The association currently focuses on assurance, security, and governance and provides globally recognized 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.
