Glory Idehen, President, Information Systems Audit and Control Association ( ISACA), said on Saturday that the association wanted to use different sporting activities to create digital security awareness for various interest groups.
Idehen told Journalists at the old parade ground in Abuja that the ISACA Community Day, observed on every first Saturday of October, was a day set aside to give back to the society.
He said that it was a worthwhile endeavour to honour ISACA’s past years and make a difference locally and globally in the years to come.
“Since three years ago we decided to connect with the communities and to give something back to the community so that the community also impacts in our various projects.
“Last year, we did tree planting for the environment, this year we decided to do something different with work-life balance, let us get out of our offices and receive fresh air and do some exercise.
” It is getting better year in year out, the number of people exceeded our expectations. This is a welcomed development, it means everyone is interested in working with us.
”Participation is free in so far as the person is willingly to register via the association’s app, Helper Helper at (https//engage.isaca.org),” he said.
Idehen said that they had partnered the Nigeria Volleyball Federation (NVBF) and many other organizations to develop ISACA’s objectives.
“This year we did the partnership with the volleyball federation and other organization that are here today. We did a survey on the game of Volleyball and we found out that this is the kind of game our members are interested in.
“We reached out to the volleyball federation and the president elect accepted and he was here presently to witness the occasion and with his coaches and supporters,” he said
He added that the association was studying how it can connect ”with our immediate community, and once a committee is set up, it hoped to determine what ways it can impact the communities”.
“We are going to be having our congress meeting and it’s going to be online at ISACA abuja.org.” he said.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the theme of the meeting would be: ”Impacting our society through Sports and digital security awareness”.
