3 July 2013

ISACA, the information security association serving 110,000 IT governance, assurance, risk and security professionals in 180 countries around the world, has announced its 2013-2014 board of directors, with Morgan Stanley’s London-based Allen Boardman being re-selected as international vice president and the UK and financial services representative.

Three new directors were appointed to ISACA’s board for the 2013-2014 term: Christos Dimitriadis, head of information security for Intralot Group (Greece); Krysten McCabe, senior manager in the assurance and advisory management programme at Home Depot (USA); and Jo Stewart-Rattray, director of information security and IT assurance at BRM Holdich (Australia).

“ISACA’s board of directors includes industry leaders from all over the world who are dedicated advocates for ISACA members and the critical roles they serve in their enterprises,” said ISACA new international president, Tony Hayes, when commenting on the most recent elections. “I am proud to be a part of this group as we further ISACA’s mission to help our constituents ensure trust in and value from information and technology through effective governance and management.”

Founded in 1969, ISACA develops international standards, frameworks and guidance to try to help enterprises maximise the value of their information and systems. The trade body administers the Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) standard, Certified Information Security Manager (CISM), Certified in the Governance of Enterprise IT (CGEIT), and Certified in Risk and Information Systems Control (CRISC) designations. The association also developed and continually updates COBIT, the framework for governance and management of enterprise IT, with COBIT 5 released last year.

Commenting on his re-election as international vice president, Morgan Stanley’s Boardman, said he was “looking forward to another exciting and busy year for ISACA, as it strives to become the foremost global organisation on the topic of trust in and value from information and information systems.”

Boardman began his career with Deloitte in Cape Town, South Africa, and has more than 30 years of experience in information systems audit, risk, security and consultancy roles at companies including JPMorgan, Goldman Sachs, KPMG, PwC, Marks and Spencer, and the London Stock Exchange (LSE). He is a past president of the ISACA London Chapter and has served on the British Computer Society’s (BCS) Information Risk Management and Audit Committee. He has also served on and chaired ISACA’s CISM Certification Committee and Leadership Development Committee. He currently chairs ISACA’s Credentialing and Career Management Board and is a member of ISACA’s Strategic Advisory Council, as well as a Freeman of the City of London.
