Alexander Abramov,

President, ISACA New York Metropolitan Chapter 



In an effort to make a deeper and more transparent impact to the community, the ISACA New York Metropolitan 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 to provide training to 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.

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

All donations are 100% tax deductible.
