President's Message

Every year ISACA recognizes outstanding contributions that advance our professional community by presenting awards for achievements by chapters and individual chapter members.

Our Chapter has received nominations for K. Wayne Snipes Best Chapter Award and Innovative Chapter Program Award. I would like to recognize Karen Alexander, 1st Vice President and Farid Kader, Corresponding Secretary for their work on the submission as well as all our Officers, Committee Chairs and the rest of active Board members who had contributed to our achievements over the last year.

As a part of the submission process, the Chapter could solicit endorsements for our work. We are extremely proud to share that we’ve received very enthusiastic and whole-hearted endorsements from Past ISACA Chairs, Board Members, Wasserman Award winners, and distinguished members of ISACA community:

  • James Ambrosini
  • Marios Damianides
  • Emil D’Angelo
  • Chris Moschovitis
  • Steven Ross

In their endorsements, very moving words came from my mentors for many years, Marios Damianides, EY Partner, Cyber Security Leader, Past ISACA Chair: "Fully endorse and support wholeheartedly! Very proud of what Alex and his team are doing in NY!"

and from Jim Ambrosini, SVP, Wells Fargo, Past ISACA New York Metropolitan Chapter President:  "Best chapter in the world. Hands down."  

We are looking forward to hear decision of ISACA Awards Committee, however, no matter what it would be, we are honored and humbled by strong endorsements we’ve received.

Thank you!.

Alexander Abramov

President, ISACA New York Metropolitan Chapter
