Help ISACA recognize outstanding thought leadership, professional achievements, and volunteer service across our professional community by nominating a colleague for an ISACA Award! This peer-recognition program relies on ISACA Members to submit nominations and volunteer judges to evaluate and select the recipients.

All nominations are accepted through the ISACA Awards portal. Please do NOT click "apply" above to participate through the Engage volunteer portal as it will not be monitored.

ISACA presents awards in three categories each year:
  • Global Achievement Awards: These are the highest awards presented by ISACA to individuals for exemplary and long-standing contributions to the organization and business technology community.
  • Chapter Awards: These awards recognize outstanding contributions by chapters and individual chapter leaders in fulfilling the needs of ISACA and its professional community.
  • Certification Exam Top Scores: The top scores for the CISA®, CISM®, CGEIT®, CRISC and CSX Practitioner exams worldwide are recognized in the year following the exam.

  • All nominators must be ISACA Members.
  • Candidates (the individuals being nominated) do not need to be ISACA Members.
  • Anyone within the review process (i.e. ISACA Board of Directors, judges, Awards Working Group volunteers) are not eligible to participate during their service.
  • Verify eligibility of nominators, candidates and endorsers here: Global Achievement Awards or Chapter Awards

  • Nominations close 15 August annually. All paperwork must be finalized and submitted (including endorsement letters) by 11:59 pm US CT on 15 August via the online awards portal
  • Peer judges will evaluate all submissions based on the specified criteria for each award, and the Awards Working Group will select the next class of recipients.
  • Presentations will take place the following calendar year. In 2020, Chapter Awards will be presented at the Global Leadership Summit and the Global Achievement Award recipients and Certification Exam Top Scores will be honored at Euro CACS/CSX.
