About ISACA

As an independent, nonprofit, global association, ISACA engages in the development, adoption and use of globally accepted, industry-leading knowledge and practices for information systems. Previously known as the Information Systems Audit and Control Association, ISACA now goes by its acronym only, to reflect the broad range of IT governance professionals it serves.

As it enters its 50th year ISACA’s constituency—more than 140,000 strong worldwide—is characterized by its diversity. Constituents live and work in more than 180 countries and cover a variety of professional IT-related positions—to name just a few, IS auditor, consultant, educator, IS security professional, regulator, chief information officer and internal auditor. Some are new to the field, others are at middle management levels and still others are in the most senior ranks. They work in nearly all industry categories, including financial and banking, public accounting, government and the public sector, utilities and manufacturing. This diversity enables members to learn from each other, and exchange widely divergent viewpoints on a variety of professional topics. It has long been considered one of ISACA’s strengths.

ISACA has more than 200 chapters established in over 80 countries worldwide, and those chapters provide members education, resource sharing, advocacy, professional networking and a host of other benefits on a local level.

ISACA membership and its certification programs are globally accepted and recognized. In fact, independent studies continue to demonstrate that holding an ISACA designation enhances professional recognition, credibility and earning potential.

In a profession as ever-changing as IT, professional development is a necessity. ISACA is recognized as a highly respected and sought-after resource for professional education and development. Connecting IT professionals across a variety of industries, geography and professions, ISACA is dedicated to providing products and services that bring value to our members. We provide the relevant tools to promote growth, innovation and trust.
