Last year’s conference in New Orleans was ISACA’s best rated conference ever and attracted record-breaking attendance. Check out what our attendees said about their experience:

“This was one of the best conferences I have attended- insightful presentations and speakers; great networking, entertainment and food!”

“Having put off attending a CACS conference for the past three years, I regret not taking advantage of such a rewarding experience! I fully intend to budget for this event to attend annually.”

“The conference was very well done and organized. The 1940s event was a wonderful networking event. I found the sessions to be very useful for my job and the speakers were well informed. Networking with the other professional was invaluable.”
