ISACA Gains Founding Member status of the UK Cyber Security Council
To acknowledge ISACA’s contribution, as a member of the Cyber Security Alliance, to establishing the UK Cyber Security Council, ISACA has been granted Founding Member status.
The UK Cyber Security Council is steadily adding to the plans and strategies that ISACA and the other members of the Cyber Security Alliance developed and put in place during the Formation Project.
The Council has recently instigated its first two initiatives. It has invited the 16 members of the Cyber Security Alliance to apply for a role in determining the terms of reference for two significant, new committees: a Professional Standards & Ethics Committee and a Qualifications & Careers Committee.
More information about the UK Cyber Security Council and the other Founding Members can be found here.
