Anticipated outcomes:

  • Continuing professional education is best accomplished in a setting that encourages dialogue, discussion and debate, both formally within the sessions and informally. Volunteer speakers will offer cutting-edge thought leadership, research and advice on the current and emerging threat environment and how you can be better prepared to counter it. 
  • ISACA seeks innovative webinar proposals that not only speak to the current industry climate, but also provide context. Speakers should offer real-world examples, case studies, successes and failures, examples of actual tools and working papers used and insights on emerging issues. ISACA is not looking for lectures, but rather innovative and exciting educational webinars. ISACA expects learning objectives for proposed presentations to reflect actions and abilities the attendees can employ from participating in the webinar. The learning objectives must be clear and measurable. Learning objectives need to complete the following sentence: “After completing this session, the participant will be able to…”.
  • The speaker must agree to a date and time available from the ISACA webinar calendar and prepare 60 minutes presentation that will be presented live. Speaker should also be prepared to answer a live question and answer during the webinar. The speaker must provide a webinar title, webinar abstract, headshot, bio and credentials. Speaker will need to sign an ISACA Speaker Agreement and provide PowerPoint presentation of 40-45 slides covering the proposed content. Additional resources to provide webinar participants is optional. This could include white papers, relevant articles, tools, guides, sample programs and other information that extends the learning beyond the session and adds value to the event. Presentation material including additional resources is subject to quality review by the subject matter experts and must be ready in its final form approximately 10 days prior to the event. Please carefully consider, if selected as a speaker, whether you would be able to comply with the deadline.
  • Industry-specific sessions are welcome to make guidance more specific. Proposals from a panel are also accepted in order to share multiple perspectives on a topic.
