Site Maintenance 8-30 September

As part of ISACA's Digital First initiative, login will be unavailable 8-30 September for system updates. This includes access to any members-only content on chapter websites, global online communities (discussions and libraries) and volunteer applications. Sorry for any inconvenience. Learn more about ISACA's Digital First initiative and impact to isaca.org and other systems here: https://www.isaca.org/go/digitalfirst.

What's New

Website Down in September

You may have heard about ISACA’s “Digital First” initiative—an organization-wide digital transformation and modernization—in ISACA Live videos on LinkedIn and/or in recent articles. We are preparing to take a huge step forward in that initiative: a transition to a new association management system. This system will help ISACA deliver more valuable, relevant, and personalized information to our members.

As part of this transition, the ISACA website (www.isaca.org) will need to be taken offline for approximately six days in what we hope will be mid-September. The “site blackout” is tentatively planned for 8-14 September, and the certification exam blackout is planned from 8-13 September. All members—and exam candidates who would be impacted—will receive ample notice should dates change. During that time:

  • No one will be able to transact any business on the ISACA website, including taking or registering for a certification or certificate exam.
  • The New Jersey Chapter website, which is hosted on the Engage platform, will be unavailable (note: The entire Engage platform may be down for a day or two longer than ISACA.org).

Join NJ ISACA as we exemplify our purpose, promise, and values with a day of service around the world on Saturday, October 2nd. NJ ISACA plans to spend Community Day helping at the Community FoodBank of New Jersey (CFBNJ), the state’s largest anti-hunger and anti-poverty organization. 

          Location: 31 Evans Terminal, Hillside, NJ 07205

Additional information about CFBNJ can be found at www.cfbnj.org.
