Who We Are

We are the Kongu Engineering College student group of ISACA, the pioneer in setting information system standards and benchmarks for enterprises worldwide.

Overview

ISACA is an independent, nonprofit, global association that engages in the development, adoption and use of globally accepted information system (IS) knowledge and practices. 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.

History

ISACA got its start in 1967, when a small group of individuals auditing controls in the computer systems that were becoming increasingly critical to the operations of their organizations realized the need for a centralized source of information and guidance in the field. In 1969, the group formalized, incorporating as the EDP Auditors Association.

Members

Today, ISACA’s constituency—more than 140,000 strong worldwide—is characterized by its diversity. Constituents live and work in more than 180 countries and cover a variety of professional IT-related positions—to name just a few, IS auditor, consultant, educator, IS security professional, regulator, chief information officer and internal auditor from nearly all industry categories.

Local Chapter

Our Coimbatore Chapter was established in 1997 and has played a significant role in bridging the international professional organization with the local community. We connect professional members of the chapter with ISACAs 190+ chapters worldwide for professional networking, resource sharing, access for technical know-how and several other benefits.

What we do

Our mission is to make people cyberaware and help them stay safe online.

Human beings are said to be the weakest link in the cybersecurity chain. Statistics has shown that almost 85% of the cyber attacks ever occured have succeeded because of human ignorance. We aim to equip people with the knowledge to defend themselves against possible cyber attacks.
