opens the door to the connections, knowledge and professional development
tools you need to succeed as you pursue your career.

ISACA student membership gives you that edge by helping you to:

  • Find the right job. Student members may post resumes/CVs and get email job notifications from the ISACA Career Centre.
  • Increase your value to prospective employers by expanding your skill set. Gain industry knowledge by attending ISACA educational events, and reading the bimonthly ISACA Journal (free to members online and as a mobile application).
