Greetings Members of the ISACA Ottawa Valley Chapter,Here is to a bright 2022-2023, with new successful opportunities. As we slowly exit the COVID crisis, we are in a new world with high inflation, numerous unfilled jobs, and working from home. Last year was a super year with many virtual professional events and we led and co-hosted the virtual 3rd Digital Transformation in Government Conference with 55 speakers and at least 21 CPEs for attendees. Numerous presentations on ISACA were given at academic institutions and we welcomed the new CDSPE practitioners. In fact we broke the 600 member mark, a notable goal for the chapter. The executive pulled together to provide services to our members, and at the Annual General Meeting, we added three new volunteers.In this trying time, the need for IT governance, audit, cyber-security, risk management, and privacy has never been more important. ISACA certifications are more relevant than ever.For the 2022/2023 new year we have several goals for the local chapter that your executive is putting in place.
I would personally like to thank the executive for their outstanding work and effort and we are all looking forward to a challenging year ahead. From the membership, we are always looking for new ideas and volunteers. Please feel free to drop us a note.Looking forward to a great year and a return to a new normalcy.CheersBobRobert Weisman, PhD, PEng, PMP, CD1President ISACA Ottawa Valley Chapter
