Dear Members, students, supporters and IS Audit, Governance and Security Community,

It is indeed a great privilege for me to be given the opportunity to serve and once again lead the ISACA Karachi Chapter for the 2017-2019 term. On behalf of our Board of Directors, I thank the members for the trust reposed in us, and commit that we shall strive to live up to their expectations.

Also, this is the 20th Anniversary of the ISACA Karachi Chapter, and we are planning to have a number of grand events to mark this important milestone in the life of this Chapter. When we setup the Chapter Organizing Committee and started the efforts in 1996 to establish this Chapter under the leadership of Mr. Ahmed Saeed and Mr. Siraj Fidai, little did we imagine the tremendous success that would be bestowed upon us. Alhamdolillah! It has been a grand and successful journey for all of us who have been associated with the Karachi Chapter.

My fellow Directors on the Board and I would also like to thank the previous Board for their outstanding service to the Chapter. There have been many achievements to their credit, and I have been very fortunate to work with the previous Boards as well. Over the years, the Chapter has been blessed to have some very committed leaders on the Board, and we hope to recognize their efforts and thank them at a grand event planned to celebrate the Chapter’s Anniversary.

While the vision and mission of this Board are to promote ISACA as the leading institution in the information technology governance, security, risk and control community, and to serve its practitioners by providing the elements needed by IT professionals in an ever-changing global environment, our objectives remain to:

•   Increase the number of members including Professionals, Students, and Academic Advocates;

•   Create opportunities for Chapter members to earn and maintain CPEs along with effective and timely professional development and networking opportunities by holding seminars and workshops on topics of current interest, etc.;

•   Improve awareness of ISACA and its brand, and the value of its frameworks (like COBIT), certifications (CISA, CISM, CGEIT, CRISC, CSX), etc. in the local community;

•   Introduce Partnership & Alliance programs with Regulators (e.g. SBP, SECP, etc.) and other renowned organizations;

•   Maintain effective & regular contact & communications with Members, students& Guests and establish & maintain Social Media profile.

We are grateful to our members and supporters in helping us In order to achieve the above objectives, we look forward to working with the members as well as our partners and supporters for their participation in voluntary activities.

Independence is a precious gift of Allah, and on this momentous occasion, I would like to pray that May Allah shower His choicest blessings on Pakistan for Peace, Prosperity and Progress, and May we always remain Independent and flourishing.
