IT-ISAC, ISACA form cybersecurity partnership

The Information Technology – Information Sharing and Analysis Center (IT-ISAC) and global technology and cybersecurity association ISACA have formed a strategic partnership focused on providing additional cybersecurity thought leadership to ISACA members and on expanding training and education to technology and cybersecurity professionals, IT-ISAC announced November 19.

Through this partnership, IT-ISAC and ISACA will offer their members additional discounts, educational offerings, and events, and the organizations will collaborate on future whitepapers, research and thought leadership initiatives.

“The partnership with ISACA is another example of how collaboration can be an effective cybersecurity tool,” said Scott Algeier, executive director of the IT-ISAC. “IT-ISAC members will receive discounts on ISACA training, and ISACA members will receive cyber threat briefings from the IT-ISAC.”

The strategic partnership will also include shared promotion of various initiatives and programs and offer members access to Careers In Cybersecurity, security and risk articles and MIT CISR research briefings. Members of IT-ISAC will have access to ISACA products and can participate in ISACA’s Engage online forums to interact with other technology and security professionals and share best practices.

“Collaboration and connection help make our professional community stronger, and we are glad to partner with IT-ISAC to bring that value to our members around the world,” said David Samuelson, CEO of ISACA.
