Come Saturday, October 2, 2021, an unprecedented number of youths and adults alike within Nigeria’s federal capital territory, Abuja, will engage in different sporting events including volleyball and Aerobics at the old parade ground, area 10, while hiking will take place at Trans Engineering, Dawaki.
Participation is free, so far intending participants are willing to register via the app, Helper Helper by visiting https://engage.isaca.org.
”We have adopted this year 2021 to use different sporting activities to create digital security awareness”, says Emmanuel Omoke of ISACA.
Going further Omoke says, “The event will among others feature a volleyball competition between the various informal groups in ISACA as well as non-ISACA member participants. We are also refurbishing two adopted secondary schools volleyball courts at Gss Television and Gss Okposi”.
By the way ISACA represents Information systems Audit and control Association, a non-for-profit Information systems professional organisation with over 145,000 members in 180 countries, and about 3,000 members in Nigeria.
Through its chapters, ISACA has been in the forefront of promoting Information systems Auditing, Cyber security, IT security, IT Governance, Assurance, Risk and Privacy Control globally.
ISACA’s certifications include CISA, CISM, CRISK, CGET, CDPSE, CSXP, CSXA and many others.
“Community Day is a day set aside by ISACA, globally, usually the first Saturday of October every year, to give back to our society. It is a worthwhile endeavour to honour ISACA’s past years and make a difference locally and globally for years to come.”, adds Omoke in Abuja.
This year’s edition of ISACA’s community Day is the third in the series.
It will be recalled that the maiden edition in 2019, Abuja chapter organised a 10km walk for safety in the cyberspace.
In 2020 during the second edition, the chapter organised tree planting for global safety with trees planted and essay writing competition staged amongst students at the Government Day secondary School Karu.
