Digital trust group ISACA join ECSO to advance cybersecurity

In the midst of rapid digital transformation across cyber sectors, ISACA joins ECSO with the aim of advancing cybersecurity and improving digital skills

ISACA, a leading global association for digital trust professionals, has now joined the European Cyber Security Organisation (ECSO).

The membership will work to accelerate ECSO and ISACA’s shared commitment to advancing cybersecurity and fostering collaboration under the framework of improving digital trust across Europe. 

ISACA's membership aims to bring plenty of opportunities for organisations and professionals across Europe. As part of the collaboration, ISACA will share expertise, resources and training initiatives to develop the European cybersecurity ecosystem and strengthen cybersecurity practices throughout the region.

Working together to improve digital skills across Europe

ISACA is a global community advancing individuals and organisations in their pursuit of digital trust, leveraging the expertise of its 170,000 members who work in information security, governance, assurance, risk, privacy and quality. 

This is particularly poignant for cybersecurity in the workplace, as new hybrid working patterns can increase an organisation’s vulnerability to security threats like cyber attacks, data breaches and fraud.

Cyber Magazine has previously reported that ransomware attacks and social engineering risks have increased by 53% in 2023, as well as 40% of organisations having reported a cyber intrusion directed at their remote work environments. 

Due to digital transformation rapidly continuing to evolve, it is now critical to ensure businesses and those within the cybersecurity industry consider the effectiveness of the measures put in place to defend against cyber attacks.

Through joining ECSO, ISACA aims to provide numerous benefits and opportunities for organisations and professionals across Europe. Through collaborating with ECSO, the company will share its expertise, resources, and training initiatives to develop the European cybersecurity ecosystem and aim to enhance cybersecurity practices throughout the region as a result.

It also aims to leverage ECSO’s Women4Cyber initiative and ISACA’s One In Tech foundation’s SheLeadsTech program in multiple ways. In developing joint programs and initiatives, the partnership aims to attract more women into the cybersecurity field.

The representation of women in the cyber industry remains low, more so than the IT industry, according to Deloitte. It is increasingly important that networks to promote gender diversity within cybersecurity continue to be developed to continue business growth and better equality within the workplace.

“ISACA has long been at the forefront of addressing the cybersecurity skills gap through comprehensive education, membership, and training programs,” said Chris Dimitriadis, Chair of the Board at ISACA Europe and Chief Global Strategy Officer at ISACA.

By joining forces with ECSO, ISACA will reinforce its commitment to supporting the cybersecurity agenda of the European Union and fostering innovation, economic growth, and societal wellbeing.”
