As an independent,
nonprofit, global association, ISACA™ (www.isaca.org) engages in the development,
adoption and use of globally accepted, industry-leading knowledge and
practices for information systems. ISACA was incorporated by individuals
who recognized a need for a centralized source of information and
guidance in the growing field of auditing controls for computer systems.
ISACA got its start in 1967, when a small
group of individuals with similar jobs—auditing controls in the computer
systems that were becoming increasingly critical to the operations of
their organizations—sat down to discuss the need for a centralized source
of information and guidance in the field. In 1969, the group formalized,
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.
