Rob ClydeServing as board chair at any time in ISACA’s history would be incredible. To be able to serve in that capacity right now – as ISACA nears its 50th anniversary and with so much riding on the work of ISACA’s professional community – makes the opportunity ahead even more of an honor.

In an era when technology is driving digital transformation in just about every imaginable way – impacting all geographic regions, both the public and private sectors and industries of all types – ISACA’s professional community is facing challenges like never before. Heightened focus on data security and privacy, a shifting regulatory environment and an expanding threat landscape mean more is expected of practitioners in audit/assurance, governance, risk, information and cyber security, and related technology disciplines.

ISACA is here to be a trusted partner in your professional journey. Together, we will navigate the changes that artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things (IoT), blockchain, quantum computing and whatever comes next will bring to the enterprise landscape – and to society at large. We are laser-focused on providing the industry-leading practices, knowledge resources, training, credentials and networking opportunities needed to advance your career and help your enterprise deliver on the positive potential of technology.

For nearly 50 years, we have helped practitioners make sense of the latest forces impacting the technology workforce. As we approach the half-century mark as an organization, it is important to recognize what brought us to this point – the combination of an exceptional community of volunteers, members and staff professionals who have worked in concert across decades to ensure that ISACA continually progresses to meet the needs of our ever-changing technological landscape.

If ISACA wishes to remain relevant for the next 50 years, we must commit – as a global community – to continuing to adapt and evolve, to showing the world, today, the technology that will be arriving and impacting their lives tomorrow.

Ultimately, though, ISACA isn’t only about technology – it’s about people.

Even more important than preparing for the advancement of technology, we need to ensure ISACA retains the right culture as a community of volunteers, members, and professional staff, all working together toward common goals. ISACA’s community culture needs to be rooted in adaptability and agility, while retaining its half-century of demonstrated commitment to excellence in everything it undertakes.

We are well-positioned to do exactly that, with recent initiatives such as the CMMI Cybermaturity Platform, a rich compilation of resources that helped our professional community prepare for and implement GDPR, the advancement of ISACA’s SheLeadsTech program and the opening of a new office in Beijing serving as promising examples of the organization’s growing reach and impact. There are exciting opportunities to build additional momentum in the year ahead, including developing and executing on a plan for an ISACA charitable foundation and continuing to innovate with our training, certifications and CSX platform.

I want to thank my predecessor, Theresa Grafenstine, for the excellent work she did as board chair during the 2017-18 term. Fortunately, Terry will remain part of the 2018-19 board, which features a tremendous range of talent and expertise from around the globe:

  • Robert Clyde, CISM, NACD Board Leadership Fellow, chair
  • Brennan Baybeck, CISA, CRISC, CISM, CISSP, vice-chair
  • Tracey Dedrick, director
  • Leonard Ong, CISA, CRISC, CISM, CGEIT, CFE, CIS, CISSP, CPP, CSSCP, ISSAP, ISSMP, PMP, director
  • R. V. Raghu, CISA, CRISC, director
  • Gabriela Reynaga, CISA, CRISC, director
  • Gregory Touhill, CISM, CISSP, Brigadier General USAF (ret), director
  • Theodore Wolff, CISA, director
  • Tichaona Zororo, CISA, CRISC, CISM, CGEIT, CIA, CRMA, director
  • Theresa Grafenstine, CISA, CRISC, CGEIT, CGAP, CGMA, CIA, CPA, director, board chair (2017-18)
  • Chris Dimitriadis, CISA, CRISC, CISM, ISO 20000 LA, director, board chair (2015-2017)
  • Robert E Stroud, CRISC, CGEIT, director, board chair (2014-2015)
  • Matt Loeb, CGEIT, CAE, FASAE, CEO and director

I am proud that we are all part of an organization that devotes itself to aiding the world in recognizing the positive potential of technology. Together, with our members, certification-holders and incredible network of volunteers, we will celebrate ISACA’s proud, 50-year history, while simultaneously helping to position our professional community for its most important contributions yet. I can’t think of a better, or more exciting, time to propel ISACA forward.
