ISACA got its start in 1967 by a small group of individuals with similar jobs auditing controls in computer systems that were becoming more critical to their organizations’ operations. This group saw the need for a centralized source of information and guidance in the field and formalized in 1969, incorporating as the EDP Auditors Association. In 1976 the association formed an education foundation to undertake large-scale research efforts to expand the knowledge and value of the IT governance and control field. Previously known as the Information Systems Audit and Control Association®, ISACA now goes only by its acronym to reflect the broad range of IT governance professionals we serve.
Today, ISACA’s constituency of more than 165,000 strong worldwide is characterized by its diversity. These professionals live and work in more than 180 countries and cover a variety of professional IT-related positions in the disciplines of IS/IT audit, risk, security and governance as well as educators, consultants and regulators. Some are new to their careers, 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.
