We are the London Chapter of ISACA (formerly the Information Systems Audit and Control Association), an international body that has been in existence since 1969. ISACA London Chapter, the first in the UK, was established in 1981. Other UK Chapters include Northern England, Central England, Winchester, Scotland, and the Ireland Chapter (which covers both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland).
London Chapter has almost 4,000 members who come from a wide cross-section of business including the accountancy and information systems professions, central and local government, the banking, manufacturing and service sectors and academia.
ISACA is the voice of the Information Systems Audit, IT Governance, Risk Management and Cyber Security professions. For over 50 years, ISACA has helped enterprises develop strong IT workforces by inspiring and equipping individuals to be more capable, valuable and successful in the fast-changing world of Information Technology and Business. By offering industry-leading knowledge, standards, credentialing and education, ISACA enables professionals to apply technology in ways that instil confidence, address threats, drive innovation and create positive momentum for their organizations. ISACA is the creator of the COBIT framework, which helps organizations effectively govern and manage their information and technology. Through its Cyber Security Nexus (CSX), ISACA helps organizations develop skilled cyber workforces and enables individuals to grow and advance their cyber security careers. Our Chapter goals and objectives are to promote ISACA’s standing in the Business and IT community, increase the Chapter membership and support existing members through maintaining certifications and knowledge.
