First Annual All-Day GRC Conference January 26, 2018

Risk and compliance landscape is complex with overlapping regulatory requirements and lack of insight into interconnection between risks. moreover, it is getting more complicated especially with the emergence of technologies that are not only enabling but disrupting the business models and increasing cyber-attacks that are threatening the very existence of the business itself.

The proposed topics for the conference provide an insight of the GRC technology capabilities especially in the context of the GRC role in laying the foundation necessary for the business to connect the dots and see the big picture in managing the risk and compliance.

Mark your calendars and join us to have a high-impact conference, and we are very excited you will be part of it!

Registration link to open shortly.

Stay tuned.

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.
