Description:

The UK Advocacy Task Force will coordinate ISACA advocacy efforts towards the UK public sector and across the UK with the goal of coordinating and streamlining advocacy efforts, contributing to elevating ISACA branding in the region, responding to consultations, and ensuring one, consistent voice.

Anticipated Outcomes: 

The UK Task Force will input into UK public affairs engagement in policy issues that impact the profession, relevant advocacy initiatives carried out by ISACA, in addition to collaborating on ad hoc projects at ISACA Global’s request (i.e. consultations, etc.). There could be the option of one in person meeting during this term (global health precautions permitting), but the other meetings, which are scheduled as needed, will be virtual. In addition to responding to ISACA Global’s requests, the task force will look for and identify opportunities where ISACA could/should position itself in the UK market and within UK public policy discussions.

  • Identify and prioritize opportunities to place ISACA’s voice.
  • Coordinate objectives and messaging for meetings with government officials.
  • Potentially attend meetings or join public events on behalf of ISACA, where appropriate to do so.
  • Identify partnership opportunities for ISACA where the organization will benefit from collaboration.
  • Leverage the ability to coordinate efforts to engage in more high-profile public affairs opportunities.
  • Raise ISACA’s profile with UK government due to the coordinated efforts.
  • Demonstrate measurable results from coordinated efforts.
  • Engage with ISACA public affairs team to ensure alignment and coordination on initiatives.
  • Provide input into position papers and other ISACA advocacy documents.
  • Task force meetings will be primarily conducted virtually. There is the possibility that an in-person meeting or engagement will be organized at some point during the term.

Volunteer Criteria:

  • ISACA membership required.
  • Knowledge of ISACA frameworks, products, certifications and services.
  • Understanding of public affairs / advocacy / government relations is a plus.
  • ISACA certification holders a plus.
  • Resident of the UK, or non-UK resident working directly with UK public policy efforts.

Volunteer Benefits: 

  • Up to 20 CPE credits (max. 20 annually) in the area of Working on ISACA Boards/Committees/Working Groups upon successful completion of the term.
