Message from the Chapter President


My Dear Professional Colleagues,

I am honoured and blessed to be elected as the President of ISACA Muscat Chapter, in the AGM held on 26 February 2020. It is indeed a privilege to lead the board of directors to serve the prestigious community of the chapter members and all other stakeholders.

This year ISACA Muscat chapter is completing 20 years of its presence in Oman. I respect, value, appreciate and thank all the past presidents and the boards for their contributions in advancing the chapter forward since its inception in 2000. I would like to sincerely thank our immediate Past president Mr. Mari Ponniah for his guidance, coaching and mentoring during my term as Vice President in the previous Board.

I congratulate all the members of the new board 2020-2021. The new board takes on from the achievements the chapter has made so far and are committed to sustain and advance the chapter performance graph further and better. 

The board will continue to make all its efforts to increase value to the members and the community focusing on its strategies;

  • Increasing the membership while retaining the existing members
  • Improving quality of educational programs and
  • Spreading awareness about ISACA and promoting the certifications

In addition, this year we would be focusing on extending chapter’s reach to the academic community, business and the regulatory bodies in Oman.

We request the wholehearted support, encouragement and active participation of the members in all the chapter activities.

Best Wishes,

Biju Joseph Padanilam
