From Disruptive to Daily Dependence: 50 Years and Future Tech

A Plenary Panel Discussion to Mark ISACA’s 50th Anniversary 2019

ISACA professionals in the last 50 years have had to quickly assess new technologies, implementing support, control, audit, governance, risk assessment, and so much more, for their organizations, business enterprise and operations. As we look to the future – assessing and implementing technologies that are disrupting industries, and the tech that has yet to come – we can also learn from the past.

This expert panel, featuring CISOs, CIOs, CEOs, and other leaders, will review the disruptive technologies that have changed how we live and work, and discuss “what’s next, now” – the current state of disruptive technologies and what we can look forward to with the ever-accelerating technology change machine.

Some disruptive technologies, by decade:

  • 1960s: mainframe, Internet, first learning robot, laser beam, man’s moon landing
  • 1970s: personal computer, laser printer, LCD panel, compact disc, 1G mobile network
  • 1980s: laptop computer, IBM PC, Internet protocol standard, cell phones, the Walkman
  • 1990s: World Wide Web, e-commerce, Hubble Telescope, DVD, USB flash drive, MP3 players
  • 2000s: WiFi, smart phones, Google, social media, GPS for civilian use
  • 2010s: tablets, 8-terabyte hard drive, 5-atom quantum computer, IoT

Continuing Professional Education Credits

To maintain ISACA certifications, certification holders are required to earn 120 CPE credit hours over a three-year period in accordance with ISACA’s continuing professional education (CPE) policy. Attendees can earn up to 26 CPE credits; 12 by attending AfricaCACS, 14 for attending a 2-day post-conference workshop, and 7 for attending a 1-day post-conference workshop. ISACA conferences are Group Live and do not require any advanced preparation.

Please note that the session scanners at the Conference do not track CPE credit hours. You will still need to allocate your CPE hours in “My ISACA” following the conference. Certificates of Attendance will be accessible via your MyISACA account. To view your certificate, log into your account and navigate to the “myDOWNLOADS & CERTIFICATES” tab. There you will find a “MY CPE CERTIFICATES” section where all of your ISACA event CPE Certificates will live.

Your Certificate of Attendance details the maximum number of CPE hours you could have earned by attending this event. CPE policies for each ISACA certification, as well as details on how to report your CPE hours, are available here on ISACA’s website. Reporting can also be done by submitting information on the annual renewal invoice.
