ISACA Launching Future-focused Initiatives in Its 50th Anniversary Year

Schaumburg, IL, USA (23 January 2018)—Now more than 450,000 engaged professionals and 140,000 members strong, global information technology association ISACA was founded by seven individuals as the EDP Auditing Association in California at the dawn of the information systems era—1969.

Serving audit, governance, risk and cybersecurity professionals and their enterprises, today ISACA has a presence in 188 countries. Headquartered near Chicago, Illinois, USA, ISACA also established an entity in Beijing, China, last year, and acquired the CMMI Institute in 2016.

In 2019—its 50th anniversary year—ISACA has adopted the theme, “Honoring Our Past. Innovating Our Future.” The organization has multiple initiatives planned to mark this milestone, including:

  • Transforming IT Audit initiative—In February 2019, ISACA will launch a Transforming IT Audit microsite with resources to help IT auditors successfully navigate the future of the profession, including emerging areas like AI and blockchain, and featuring results from ISACA’s new global Future of IT Audit study surveying more than 4,000 IT auditors.
  • Expanding COBIT 2019—To ensure COBIT 2019 is up to date with leading-edge technologies and guidance, ISACA will update this portfolio regularly, partly through a new COBIT wiki that will enable experts from around the world to share their perspectives on valuable additions and updates to the framework.
  1. New conferences and events—Through a partnership announced last year with Infosecurity Group, ISACA will debut Infosecurity ISACA North America Expo and Conference, 20-21 November 2019, New York, NY, USA and will unveil EuroCACS/CSX, 16-18 October 2019, in Geneva, Switzerland.

“As a longtime ISACA member, volunteer and board chair during this milestone period, I have never been more energized to be part of the organization than I am right now, and I’m even more excited to see what comes next in 2019 and beyond,” said ISACA Board Chair Rob Clyde, CISM. “We celebrate our past to inspire, motivate and propel us into the future. Our 50th anniversary has been developed as a continual, inclusive experience and worldwide celebration.” 

“As we celebrate this milestone year, it is an opportunity to look back on our rich past and thank our members, volunteers and staff who have brought us to where we are today,” added Brennan P. Baybeck, CISA, CISM, CRISC, CISSP, current ISACA Board vice chair who will become chair in June. “Equally important, this is a time and opportunity to look ahead to our exciting future.”

Since its inception 50 years ago—the same year the first human being walked on the moon—ISACA has helped IT auditors and business technology professionals advance their careers and help their enterprises realize the positive potential of technology.

ISACA has launched a 50th anniversary web site featuring videos, an anniversary podcast series, infographics, photos and more at www.isaca50.org. Members and others can participate in the “Where in the World Is ISACA?” social media campaign at www.isaca50.org/participate and follow the conversation using #ISACA50. 

Additionally, ISACA’s 50th anniversary will be celebrated at each of the association’s CACS conferences around the world, including at North America CACS, which will be held near Los Angeles, California, USA—where the association was first established.
