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

Requirements for visitor’s visas differ from country to country (see which countries are currently exempt), and the requirements are subject to change. As each application is treated as an individual case and you should make enquiries with your nearest South African mission or consulate abroad or any office of the Department of Home Affairs to see whether or not you are required to apply for a visa. Visas are not issued at South African ports of entry, and airline officials are obliged to insist on visas before allowing passengers to board. For a stay of a longer period with other objectives (business, study, work, etc.) it is necessary to request the corresponding visa from the South African consulates.


All travelers should be up to date on routine vaccinations while traveling to any destination. Some vaccines may also be required for travel. Make sure you are up-to-date on routine vaccines before every trip. These vaccines include measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine, diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis vaccine, varicella (chickenpox) vaccine, polio vaccine, and your yearly flu shot.
