ISACAÂ® got its start in 1967 by a small group of individuals with similar jobs auditing controls in computer systems that were becoming more critical to their organisationsâ€™ operations. This group saw the need for a centralised source of information and guidance in the field and formalised in 1969, incorporating as the EDP Auditors Association. In 1976 the association formed an education foundation to undertake large-scale research efforts to expand the knowledge and value of the IT governance and control field. Previously known as the Information Systems Audit and Control AssociationÂ®, ISACA now goes only by its acronym to reflect the broad range of IT governance professionals served.
Today, ISACAâ€™s constituency of more than 165,000 strong worldwide is characterised by its diversity. Constituents live and work in more than 180 countries and cover a variety of professional IT-related positions in the disciplines of IS/IT audit, risk, security and governance as well as educators, consultants and regulators. ISACA currently has more than 200 chapters established in over 80 countries worldwide providing membersâ€™ education, resource sharing, advocacy, professional networking and a host of other benefits on a local level.
