SIG Menu

ISACA Houston setting up several “Special Interest Groups”, a platform for chapter members with similar experience, role responsibilities, and from same function/industry background to collaborate and engage in a meaningful peer to peer conversations on diverse topics of interest in technology, cybersecurity, risk, compliance and audit areas.

Houston being the capital for Oil&Gas and emerging centre for Healthcare, we are setting up a special interest group [SIG] on “Disruptive Technology” for  

  • Oil&Gas
  • Healthcare

The “Disruptive Technology SIG” aims to provide a platform for chapter members to - 

  • Discuss the role and impact of the technology disruption [internet of things, machine learning, block chain, cryptocurrency, robotic process automation, and artificial intelligence etc.] taking place in the organization/sector.
  • Collaborate on the best practices / tactics used in implementing these disruptive technologies for gaining better process efficiencies at workplace
  • Enhance the knowledge/skills sets necessary for providing guidance and assurance to the board/executive management in adopting disruptive technologies

If you would like to know more about the “Disruptive Technology SIG” and get involved, please do reach out to Sesh Vaidyula at This email address is being protected from spambots.

About Us


Chapter Members and Visitors,

Welcome to our ISACA, Great Houston Chapter website!

We recently held our Annual General Meeting and one day gratis Security and Audit Conference July 21. We have not offered a gratis one day conference in a while, although all of our conferences are quite reasonable, and it was appreciated. As someone noted, “Free is always good!”

We had a good turnout, around 125, with approximately 85 staying to the final bell; it did help that we gave away several $100 certificates at the close of the day.

We had several folks who gave significantly of their time to both plan and serve our members and guests during the conference, and we will acknowledge them shortly on our website. However, one person I want to thank now is Mel McQueary, with HCC, who was able to help us rent the auditorium at their West Loop South Campus. We received many compliments on the space itself, and the location.


More About Us

What We Do

Our aim is to sponsor local educational seminars and workshops, conduct regular chapter meetings, and help to further promote and elevate the visibility of the IS audit, control and security profession throughout the area. 

 We conduct chapter meetings the third Thursday of the month that typically includes a morning or afternoon training along with a luncheon meeting/training.  We also sponsor SIG group meetings on the same day.

Local seminars are held in the spring and fall that include topics of high relevance to our membership community. Certification training is scheduled before each ISACA exam date based on interest level. 

We partner with other organizations to provide additional educational opportunities for our greater Houston area membership. Please visit our chapter EVENTS page frequently for the latest educational and networking opportunities.
