The main goal of the ISACA Student Group (ISG) is to provide guidance and opportunities to students who are preparing for a career with a leadership role in all industries reliant upon and supported by information systems. The organization focuses on enabling students to develop professional networks through interactions with industry professionals, enhancing leadership skills, identifying career paths and creating opportunities while supporting other like-minded students.
Our initiatives include hosting a variety of successful guest speakers to share their experiences in the IT industry and holding workshops that would benefit our members. Workshop topics include work-specific best practices, certification training, improving interview skills and more.
