First Prev 1 2 Next Last

Governance, risk compliance and cybersecurity will be just a few of the topics on the agenda at the 2019 annual “Going Digital” conference on Friday.

David Burt, the Premier, will give the keynote address at the conference, jointly hosted by information technology auditing organisation Isaca Bermuda and the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) Bermuda Chapter.

“Bermuda has a long history of innovation, and the Government is focused on ensuring that our country is well positioned to be a home for innovation in the digital economy,” Mr Burt said.

“I encourage everyone to attend the event, listen to discussions, ask questions, and take advantage of the opportunity to learn about emerging trends, interact with industry professionals to enhance your knowledge and skills in the field.”

Isaca's aim is to sponsor local educational seminars and workshops, conduct regular chapter meetings, and help to further promote and elevate the visibility of the IS audit, control and security profession throughout the region.

Internationally, Isaca is celebrating a half a century in existence. It was originally incorporated in Los Angeles, California, USA in 1969 as the EDP Auditors Association, and created its first certification, the Certified Information Security Auditor, in 1978. The Isaca Bermuda chapter was founded with 14 members in January 1997 by Thomas A Thornton, Onesimus Nzabalinda, Charlene Gilbert, Dave Conte, Catherine Graham, Carol L Hall, and Marcia Williams-Looby. It currently has over 80 members.

The IIA is an international professional association of more than 170,000 members. The IIA Bermuda chapter has 90 members representing 35 different organisations across the island. The IIA Bermuda Chapter is dedicated to promoting the profession through education and training including scholarship opportunities for Bermudian and long-term residents interested in obtaining an IIA designation.

This conference is sponsored in part by Deloitte, KPMG and Unicage.

It will be held at the Royal Hamilton Amateur Dinghy Club between 8.30am and 5.30pm.

Admission is $300 for members, and $350 for non-members. Student admission is $100. Tickets can be purchased at www.ptix.bm or by contacting programs@Isacabermuda.com to pay by wire transfer
