Now in its 45th year, ISACA develops international standards,
frameworks and guidance to help enterprises optimize the value of their
information and systems and ensure that technology is fully integrated
with the business. ISACA established the Certified Information Systems
Auditor (CISA), Certified Information Security Manager (CISM), Certified
in the Governance of Enterprise IT (CGEIT), and Certified in Risk and
Information Systems Control (CRISC) designations, and recently announced
a new cybersecurity certificate and practitioner certification.
These new credentials are part of ISACA’s Cybersecurity
Nexus (CSX), a comprehensive program to help enterprises address the
global cybersecurity skills shortage and help individuals develop their
careers. CSX fills a need for a central source where security
professionals and their enterprises can find research and guidance,
career resources, credentials, education and training, mentoring, and
community. ISACA is also the creator of COBIT,
the internationally accepted business framework that enables companies
to better manage and govern their information and technology.
“Simply put, the mission of ISACA is more critical to more organizations
around the world than ever before,” said Stroud. “I am extremely proud
to serve as ISACA international president and look forward to
collaborating with and growing the membership base, expanding its
geographical reach, and ensuring the success of the new Cybersecurity
Nexus knowledge platform—another fine example of the important work that
ISACA is driving.”
Stroud spent more than 15 years in the finance industry successfully
managing multiple initiatives in both the IT and retail banking sectors
related to IT service management and process governance. He joined CA
Technologies from the Australian computer security company Cybec, where
he was responsible for the company’s successful global expansion,
including entry into the North American market. He is a member of
ISACA’s Strategic Advisory Council and Governance Advisory Council. He
has served as international vice president of ISACA, chair of ISACA’s
ISO Liaison Subcommittee and COBIT Steering Committee, and member of the
Professional Influence/Advocacy Committee and ISACA Framework Committee.
Stroud earned ISACA’s 2013 President’s Appreciation Award and ISACA’s
2014 John W. Lainhart Common Body of Knowledge Award.
“Rob brings wide and diversified skills to the international president
role, and his depth of leadership and experience will help ISACA achieve
key milestones over the next 12 months,” said Tony Hayes, CGEIT, AFCHSE,
CHE, FACS, FCPA, FIIA, immediate past international president of ISACA
and appointed Deputy Director-General of the Department of Communities,
Child Safety and Disability Services in the Queensland Government,
Australia. “Rob is a very experienced professional whose leadership will
add tremendous value to ISACA at this exciting time.”
