Message from ISACA CEO: Helping you navigate COVID-19

To Our ISACA Community,

As a global community, we immediately feel the effects of a global crisis because it affects our families, our communities, our jobs and our professions everywhere. So I first want to share my concern for your well-being and talk about steps we are taking to help. As the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to cause uncertainties, our focus is clear: It’s you—our members, partners, volunteers and staff. You are our priority. We have made several decisions and are working to provide valuable resources to help protect your health and guide you through the professional challenges COVID-19 poses in your organizations.

We have just launched a new web page (Navigating COVID-19: Helping You Manage in Times of Crisis) that has three focus areas:

Protecting the ISACA community—The latest on events, conferences, volunteering and meetings.
ISACA virtual learning opportunities that will help you meet your CPE requirements and advance your knowledge while you stay healthy.
   ISACA resources for your work—Business continuity, resiliency, remote work and crisis management


We have made decisions to postpone or make virtual several upcoming events that normally would require the social interactions we all are trying to avoid for health reasons. These events include the Global Leadership Summit, Capability Counts Conference and select Training Week events that were slated to take place in the coming weeks or months. We are looking daily at upcoming events and activities that could be impacted by this pandemic and will update this web page with the latest information on our actions and concerns.

Most of our decisions are based on a simple question: Is it safe and healthy for our community? If not, then let’s find a new way to deliver what’s expected or postpone until we can be clear that it will be healthy and safe.

I know we all look forward to business as usual as soon as possible—but in the meantime, we hope to help you navigate during this challenging time, at home, at work and with your professional journeys. Please let us know if you have ideas to make the best of our shared struggle through this.

We are truly blessed with a passionate professional community. Together, we will help our organizations navigate these challenges, take precautions to keep our families and our communities safe, and continue to learn and connect.

Best wishes and good health to you and yours,


David Samuelson
