About Our Chapter

Welcome to the ISACA Philadelphia Chapter. The aim of the Chapter is to sponsor local educational seminars and workshops, conducts regular chapter meetings, and help to further promote and elevate the visibility of the IS audit, control and security profession throughout Philadelphia.

ISACA is a world wide association of Information Systems (IS) governance professionals. The association currently focuses on assurance, (cyber) security, and governance and provides globally recognized certification in assurance (Certified Information Systems Auditor), security (Certified Information Security Manager), governance (Certified in the Governance of Enterprise IT), and risk (Certified in Risk and Information Systems Control). The recently launched Cyber Security Nexus (CSX) will help build a stronger cyber security workforce through technical training, performance based certification, conferences, career development, CPE opportunities, etc. 

The association is one of individual members, often the sole practitioner of information systems auditing, security, and/or governance in his or her company. The membership of the ISACA reflects a multiplicity of backgrounds and skills that make the information systems governance field challenging and dynamic.
