  Dear Members,

Our Chapter is celebrating 50th Anniversary of ISACA with a special event on November 8th where four Past ISACA Chairs will share their insights on their career paths and memories about ISACA and our Chapter. Three of them, Steven Ross, Michael Cangemi, and Emil D’Angelo also had served as our Chapter Presidents.

All four of the Past Chairs are actively involved in our Chapter contributing their advice and knowledge to our success. Marios Damianides (Chair 2003-2005) has been a mentor for me during all my years on the Board and helped the Chapter to build a robust Strategic Planning process that enabled us to align all our activities along our strategic goals and develop effective metrics.


At his event we will commemorate Robert Stroud, (Chair 2014-2015), who was an invited speaker for this event. He had passed away September 3, 2018. Only 55 years old, he was struck by a vehicle while jogging on Long Island, NY. “ISACA lost a dedicated leader, an engaged board member, a passionate colleague and, most notably, a very dear friend,” said Rob Clyde, ISACA Board Chair.

Though his passion for his work and volunteerism were unmatched, Rob’s deepest priority was his family. He is survived by his devoted wife of 35 years Connie, sons Josh and Kyle, daughter-in-law Allie Elizabeth, and grandchildren Ayden, Haylee and Jeremy.

Connie Stroud has accepted our invitation to the Membership meeting.

We are looking forward greeting you at this great event.

Thank you!

Alexander Abramov,

President, ISACA New York Metropolitan Chapter 



In our Chapter’s history, the ISACA Metropolitan New York Chapter has made donations to organizations furthering the development of research and technologies in the areas of IT Risk and Audit. As we have matured as a Chapter in furthering coverage in Cybersecurity and elements of Forensics (CSX Continuum), we are extending our reach towards the community in which we serve.

In an effort to make a deeper and more transparent impact to the community, the ISACA Metropolitan New York Chapter has teamed with Law Enforcement Alliance for Digital Evidence Response, Inc.(L.E.A.D.E.R.)

L.E.A.D.E.R., a non-for-profit educational organization, has a core team of ex-Federal prosecutors and investigators from many branches of the US Government with over 160 years of collective experience. L.E.A.D.E.R. hosts national and regional investigative and digital evidence symposiums across the industry, has national training centers, and facilitates innovative trainings nationally.

Our collaboration with L.E.A.D.E.R will help assist the law enforcement community, prosecutors and their strategic partners combat all forms of crime through technology. Some of these cybercrimes include online human sex trafficking, child exploitation, domestic and international terrorism, financial crimes, domestic violence, and other serious crimes.

You all use your skills on a day to day basis to identity digital and security threats, reduce fraud and misappropriations, track aggressors via forensics, and secure an organizations posture…..

….Wouldn’t it be great to use these same skill sets to help making this world a little better then we came into it?

We encourage the chapter membership to donate to this amazing cause. In the spirit of ISACA’s 50 years in the business and support for this amazing cause, our Chapter Leadership has agreed to match the first $5,000 donated!

For more information, visit here and make your donation! All deductions are 100% tax deductible.
