Rolling Meadows, IL, USA (1 February 2017)—ISACA, a global association serving IT assurance, governance and cybersecurity professionals, announced its 2017 event schedule, which includes expansion in all types of learning. Serving professionals in 180 countries, ISACA offers education, networking, credentialing and career development opportunities.

 

Building on the success of last year’s inaugural CSX cybersecurity conferences in Europe and Asia, ISACA will add sessions and learning opportunities at these events, as well as its CSX North America event.
