ISACA’s Collaboration With MIT Leads to New Member Benefits and Research 

Rolling Meadows, IL, USA (2 January 2018)—As a result of a new collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Center for Information System Research (MIT CISR), ISACA members now get free access to briefings from MIT CISR on topics ranging from governance to digital transformation. The briefings can be accessed here.

 

“ISACA and MIT CISR share a strong interest in and commitment to digital transformation and related topic areas. As a result of this collaboration, ISACA members can use these valuable evidence-based research briefings to help their companies navigate technology trends and make effective technology decisions,” said Tanya Rose, director of membership at ISACA.

 

In total, members can access more than 100 free research briefings from MIT. The three newest offerings are:

 

  • Creating Customer Value Using Analytics

  • Digitized Does Not Equal Digital

  • Future Ready? Pick Your Pathway for Digital Business Transformation

 

As a patron of MIT Center for Information Systems Research, ISACA also will work with MIT CISR on research studies. The first such study on digital transformation was recently released.

 

“Founded in 1974 and grounded in the MIT tradition of rigorous field-based research, MIT CISR helps executives meet the challenge of leading dynamic, global and information-intensive organizations. We are pleased to welcome ISACA as our newest patron. The relevance of our research is ensured by the active participation of sponsors and patrons from a wide range of industries,” said Leslie Owens, Executive Director, MIT CISR.

 

As part of its expanded member benefits program, ISACA is offering its members similar content access from additional partners, including Wapack Labs, a cyber intelligence and threat analysis company that provides early warning and threat detection services for customers worldwide.

 

Global association ISACA serves more than 138,000 members in more than 180 countries.
