Mentorship Opportunities

Overview

The ISACA Vancouver Chapter is excited to launch its 2023 mentorship program for our IT audit and IT security professionals to mentor students who will become our future CISA, CRISC, CISM, GEIT, and CSX practitioners.

This is an excellent opportunity for students and new members who would like to know more about the IT audit profession and obtain career guidance with one-on-one time from a seasoned professional mentor. This is also a fantastic opportunity to network with other mentors and mentees in the community.
