This is the 19th edition of the ISACA Malaysia Chapter’s preeminent Conference with the first one held in 2002, then known as the IT Governance Conference. It was then jointly organized with the Malaysian National Computer Confederation (MNCC), an esteemed partner of the Conference for many years. The Conference has been held annually since then with exception of the year 2020 edition due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
In 2011, it was re-branded as the IT Governance, Assurance & Security Conference, where the Conference has fast become the premier annual conference for the IT assurance, security, risk and governance professionals. The Conference has always been the leading event that brings in not only new relevant topics and ideas, but also ingenious delivery methods – being one of the first to pioneer an electronic approach – from being partially electronic, through the use of removable medias (CDs and customised drives) to provide delegates with the related materials to being fully electronic with the introduction of mobile tablets as the delivery channel. This year introduces yet another different approach with the use of a virtual platform.
The current iteration as the Cybersecurity, IT Assurance & Governance Conference (CIAG) has been solely organized by the ISACA Malaysia Chapter since 2016. The Conference is fortunate to have the support of the thousands of delegates who have attended the previous editions and the many esteemed partners in the form of supporting professional organizations and sponsors from well-known organizations throughout the editions.
The Conference is organized by the ISACA Malaysia Chapter Board members and volunteers together with the ISACA Malaysia Chapter’s Secretariat. The Board members and volunteers are not paid, and have tirelessly volunteered their time and effort for the success of these Conferences – from planning and organization to running the Conferences themselves. All net proceeds from the Conferences (including all previous editions) are for the benefit of the ISACA Malaysia Chapter in supporting the many events organized for their members’ benefit.
