ISACA´s success is defined by the passion, hard work and commitment of its more than 165,000 members in more than 180 countries worldwide.

ISACA in Europe combines the strength and scale of a large, multi-national organization with an expert, local knowledge of the market and professional communities ISACA serves. The new office intends to facilitate cooperation between European regions, chapters and members and strengthen ISACA’s capacity to collaborate with key public and private stakeholders, as well as enterprises and academia.

“Our expanded regional presence in Europe will provide services dedicated to Europe and help extend our global reach and impact,” said ISACA CEO David Samuelson. “ISACA is both a global and a local organization, and we want to serve our professional communities where they live and work. We are very excited to have a stronger local presence in Europe to better partner with European government, enterprises, universities and our members to advance digital trust.”

The office and ISACA’s new team members in Europe will build on the strong ties that already exist between regions by promoting investment, synergies and economic opportunities to benefit members and enterprises.

Ireland’s Minister of State for eGovernment Ossian Smyth said, “We welcome ISACA’s commitment and investment into Ireland. As we continue to develop Ireland as a European hub for the digital economy and as a cyber centre of excellence, it is crucial to continue to build an expert and diverse specialist ecosystem. ISACA’s pre-eminent global work on talent development, building the cyber profession and developing tools and frameworks to underpin the next phase of technology adoption in a safe and transparent manner, will be a boost to our tech scene. We look forward to ongoing cooperation with ISACA in improving cybersecurity preparedness and resilience.”

ISACA’s European presence is led by Chris Dimitriadis, Chief Global Strategy Officer at ISACA. Dimitriadis has deep industry and ISACA experience, having served as ISACA board chair and as a past chief information security officer at a global organization.
