On 23 October 1969 – Just a few months after Apollo 11 landed on the moon – Stuart Tymauer and six others incorporated the Electronic Data Processing Auditors Association (EDPAA), the precursor of ISACA. “From that point on, it was up to the association to parallel the rapid progress of computer technology in order to provide current and relevant information to its members,” according to Robert Parker, another ISACA past president.
What started as informal dinner meetings at a local restaurant in California, was to become a global technological movement. “There was no authoritative source of information. No cohesive force, no place to turn to for guidance,” said the late Stuart Tymauer – first president of ISACA.
Nearly 50 years later, ISACA continues to thrive. Few voices within today's technology industry can claim 50 years of involvement like we do.#WeAre50
