The chapter is one of the active and prominent knowledge sharing bodies in the country.

Working under the auspices of ISACA, the Bahrain Chapter engages in activities for the development, adoption and use of globally accepted, industry-leading knowledge and practices for information systems. ISACA helps its members achieve individual and organizational success, resulting in greater trust in, and value from, information systems. Its members and certification holders are qualified and skilled professionals who make a difference.

We have been active in supporting our members in Bahrain over the last 10 years. The aim of the Chapter is to provide continuous education to its members and towards this end; the Chapter organizes:
  • Regular evening talks “Continues Professional Education (CPE) Seminars” wherein volunteer speakers update our members with current developments; this also allow our members to gain CPE hours required to maintain their ISACA Certificate credentials.
  • Annual Seminar/Annual General Meeting which is a multisession event.
The Annual Conference and annual meeting of membership is usually held in the third quarter of the year which is a premium event addressed by well-known speakers and attended by fellow members and guests.
