Schaumburg, Ill. (Feb. 7 , 2022) - ISACA, a global association serving business technology professionals, announced its annual ISACA Conference series schedule for 2022, as well as additional training and learning opportunities focused on emerging technologies, innovation and best practices.
To connect with more IT professionals across the globe, ISACA has lowered its pricing for the ISACA Conference series in each of the six regions that host an event: Asia, Africa, Europe, Latin America, North America and Oceania. The ISACA Conference, hosted as a hybrid event when in-person gathering is possible, is now up to more than 50 percent reduced from its previous price in certain regions.
"As we continue to navigate the learning needs of IT professionals amidst a global pandemic, ISACA believes that providing more accessibility is key to best serving our attendees," said Christy Bares, director of event operations and services at ISACA.
"ISACA is working to promote community, inclusivity and equity in the IT and information security fields. Offering hybrid meetings at a more attainable price will allow for an expanded audience to participate, connect and learn. Understanding emerging technologies is critical to survive and thrive in the IT industry, and these price drops will help more professionals become prepared to advance to new roles or to enter the IT space."
The ISACA Conference features sessions of varying lengths that will cover topics related to audit, risk, governance, information security, cybersecurity, capability and maturity models, privacy, and emerging technologies. Sessions dedicated to career development, as well as bridging workforce and tech education gaps through One In Tech, an ISACA Foundation, will be included.
ISACA's 2022 conferences and educational events are listed below. For a list of in-person, virtual, and hybrid events, as well as the full schedule of trainings and free webinars, visit www.isaca.org/training-and-events.
