Welcome to the Northeast Ohio (“NEO”) ISACA Chapter website. The NEO Chapter strives to uphold ISACA International’s vision of: “Trust in, and value from, information systems”. Our mission is “For professionals and organzations be the leading global provider of knowledge, certifications, community, advocacy and education on information systems assurance and security, enterprise governance of IT, and IT-related risk and compliance”. The NEO Chapter does this by offering IT Governance, Assurance, Security, and Risk professions an opportunity to learn and network at our monthly meetings.

We always welcome volunteers and speakers. If you are interested in volunteering or speaking at one of our University events, please contact either Jeff Pershing (jeffpershing@yahoo.com), any of our Officers, or Volunteer Coordinator, Jim DeDad (james.dedad@erieinsurance.com).
