Greetings ISACA Detroit Members,

We’re ready to launch our 2021 – 2022 chapter year with an exciting lineup of chapter meetings, relevant topics, professional discussions, certification support, trainings, and much more! I feel blessed to be a part of this connected community of risk and IT professionals and am eagerly anticipating another eventful season of membership engagement. 

As a board we have a renewed focus on the member experience and growth of our chapter this year. A big part of that will be making sure we bring you relevant insights and topics on a regular basis. To help get that started we pulled together a summary of all our key chapter meeting polling questions and answers from the prior year. The analysis is posted directly on our site so please check it out! My favorite question was when our chapter was asked to predict the greatest cyberthreats of 2021. Cloud was the lead response by far as I know the SolarWinds incident was fresh on everyone’s mind. However, it will be interesting to see how this plays out in the future with mobile, supply chain, and critical infrastructure as likely targets. I hope that you all find this interesting and please stay tuned for more upcoming news and events on our chapter website!


Our chapter is kicking off the season with hot topics and a star-studded cast of presenters. First up on the docket is Vabihav Mehrotra (CEO, Secuvy AI) and Prashant Sharma (CTO, Secuvy AI) who will be covering The Future of Data Security and Privacy through an AI-Driven Approach. This is a critical risk area for every organization to consider as privacy laws continue to stack up. The encore presentation will be an experienced panel representing both ISACA, the CSA (Cloud Security Alliance), and key organizations across our Detroit industries. Martin Bally (CISO, Stellantis), Juman Doleh-Alomary (Director, Cybersecurity & GRC, Little Caesars), and Earl Duby (CISO, Lear) will tackle all your unanswered questions related to supply chain risk and share a perspective of how they are handling this within their companies.


Renew your ISACA membership for 2021 – 2022 today! There is still time to renew and take advantage of the ISACA Member Advantages and Benefits.
