ISACA Ireland Annual Conference 2024  

19th April - The Royal Marine Hotel, Dun Laoghaire 


ISACA Ireland will hold its Annual Conference on the 19th April 2024 at the Royal Marine Hotel, Dun Laoghaire. The conference will provide information systems professionals with a pragmatic approach to gain knowledge and guidance on industry relevant concepts, tools, and best practices.

We are asking our conference speakers to explore the current approaches that information system professionals follow and provide expert insights based on their experiences. The technology landscape is continually adapting and rapidly changing bringing new and varied challenges to Cyber, Risk and Audit professionals.

As part of our recent membership survey, we asked our members what topics they would like to see being covered at ISACA events.  The top three areas included:

  • New and Emerging Technologies
  • AI
  • Governance, Risk and Compliance.

More specifically, our members have suggested a range of topics to cover AI, Digital Trust, DORA, NIS2, 3rd Party Risk, Governance, Cloud Security and Cyber Resilience. We're eager to hear from speakers who can explore how emerging risks are being addressed in organisations and whether current approaches are keeping pace. Also, how disruptive are emerging technologies to our existing approaches?

ISACA Ireland welcomes your submission and will consider papers covering all these topics.
