On 18th July 2012, the Nanyang Polytechnic ISACA student group held its inaugural ISACA day at School of IT, Nanyang Polytechnic. Over 120 students from the School of IT attended the talk.
The event kick-started with an opening message by the President of our student group, Ernest Boey, who highlighted the benefits of being an ISACA student member. Mr Kan Siew Ning, the guest speaker, followed up by sharing with us his experiences of being a Chief Information Officer in the Singapore Police Force.
Up next, Mr Tong Seng Chee, Director of ISACA Academic Outreach and Mr Ramiah Marappan, Assistant Treasurer of ISACA, shared with us the benefits of being an ISACA member – such as having the opportunity to take up professional certifications. In addition, members also get access to a wealth of information such as COBIT 5.0 as well as the internal document library.
The event lasted for 4 hours, where delicious refreshments were provided at the end. Everyone had a good time!
