The Irish Chapter of ISACA was formed in 1998 to cater for the growing group of people in Ireland interested in information systems audit and security issues. We now have nearly 400 members from a range of industries, practice, and the public sector. We regularly host evening seminars on topics of interest to members, calling on speakers from within the membership and other experts. We also provide support for the CISA examinations.
ISACA (previously the Information Systems Audit and Control Association) is a world wide association of IS governance professionals. The association currently focuses on assurance, security, and governance and provides globally recognised certification in assurance (Certified Information Systems Auditor™), security (Certified Information Security Manager®), governance (Certified in the Governance of Enterprise IT®), and risks and controls (Certified in Risk and Information Systems Control™).
The association is one of individual members, often the sole practitioner of information systems auditing, security, and/or governance in his or her company. The membership of the ISACA reflects a multiplicity of backgrounds and skills that make the information systems governance field challenging and dynamic.
