Close & Networking
When & Where
ISACA Ireland provides regular seminars & workshops to support Information Security, Audit, Control, Data Privacy, Governance, Risk & Compliance (GRC) practitioners. Events are primarily organised for members along with guests, but non-members are generally welcome provided they do not engage in any overt marketing activities.
ISACA and the Local Chapter (ISACA Ireland) are vendor neutral organisations which do not endorse specific vendors. As an independent, nonprofit, global association, ISACA engages in the development, adoption and use of globally accepted, industry-leading knowledge and practices for information systems. Previously known as the Information Systems Audit and Control Association, ISACA now goes by its acronym only, to reflect the broad range of IT governance professionals it serves.
