ABOUT OUR CHAPTERAbout ISACA
ISACA has served our professional community for more than 50 years. The association was incorporated as the EDP Auditors Association in 1969 by a small group of individuals who recognized a need for a centralized source of information and guidance in the new field of electronic data processing audit.
Today, ISACA serves 145,000 professionals in 180 countries, who span several roles in assurance, governance, risk and information security. ISACA (isaca.org) is a global association helping individuals and enterprises achieve the positive potential of technology. Today’s world is powered by technology, and ISACA equips professionals with the knowledge, credentials, education and community to advance their careers and transform their organizations. ISACA leverages the expertise of its engaged professionals in information and cyber security, governance, assurance, risk and innovation, as well as its enterprise performance subsidiary, CMMI Institute, to help advance innovation through technology.
ISACA Central Maryland Chapter (CMC) is one of the more than 200 ISACA chapters worldwide. ISACA-CMC is a sponsor of local educational seminars, workshops, monthly training events and networking opportunities. Our goal is to help further promote and elevate the visibility of the IS audit, control and security profession throughout Maryland through robust chapter activities and teachings.
ISACA-CMC is led by a group of dedicated volunteers offering information systems, security, audit and financial professionals local educational events, resource sharing, advocacy, professional networking and a host of other benefits at the local level. During its fiscal years July 1st to June 30th, ISACA-CMC offers a monthly training event with 3 to 7 CPEs from September to May and two multi-day seminars during the spring and fall seasons. Unless otherwise stated, member prices for these training events are available for all ISACA, and local ISSA, AGA, IIA, and CFE members. In addition, retired members and full-time students qualify for reduced prices.
ISACA-CMC is a resource that enhances member skills, expands their professional knowledge, and connects them with a vibrant community of peers for vast networking exposure. Volunteers are ISACA-CMC members nominated in April each year and elected through the ISACA-CMC Annual General Meeting (AGM) held in June. Volunteers are highly encouraged to participate and assist with chapter activities.
