About Us

Harvey

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.

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.
