Top Four Under 40

Top Four Under 40 is an annual program that recognizes four ISACA New York Metro members under 40 in the IT Audit, Cybersecurity, and/or GRC space that have contributed extensive value to the team and company in which they work. They go above & beyond and we want to recognize them for their contributions to our sector. The Four Emerging Professionals are honored at our annual recognition event and highlighted on our social media channels. They also score a seat at future exam review classes (worth approximately $600)! Note: The emerging professional must be a New York Metropolitan Chapter Member to be eligible.

Top Four Under 40 Recognition Award nomination form can be found here.
