The growth of IT in this country is significantly supported by your dedication to improve information governance, resources, tasks and duties in your organisations.
As Kenya’s IT growth gathers yet more pace and develops deeper roots, it is already redefiningour investment patterns and as a result the rapid development of this country. Indeed the speed of technology investment in the country is astronomical and its already bringing in ideas of a global village sooner than we thought possible.
IT growth is allowing us as a nation take our place in Africa’s future. This is an opportunity to give practical expression to our desire to be fully developed in the technology sector which will in turn push our economy higher and faster than we anticipate.
This chapter is one bold step closer to our reality as a country to be in sync with the rest of the world in regards to controls and governance in technology that would benefit our countries growth and support our economy.
I thank the previous ISACA Board for the great work in enhancing the importance of IT security and governance and in bringing the Government to be first in line to participate and improve IT Governance in Kenya.
Public Private partnership. That’s the way we decided to go.
Indeed it is sobering to consider the way forward from the point of view of the market players and their capacity to help raise the quality of life by improving our economy.
I have to say that our collective vision is what counts most, namely the goal of universal access to basic information technology services by our people.
We as a chapter will create an enabling environment and facilitate your initiatives.
Our starting point must be the need for a new vision, one that is based on the recognition that we will only reap the full benefits of our markets if we respect the fundamental principles of investing for the good of the country.
My vision for ISACA Kenya is to be a leading organisation which drives the IT industry in Kenya, impacting and influencing the policy and decisions, particularly as regards information systems assurance, audit, security, governance, risk management and cybersecurity.
Ladies and gentlemen, I thank you.
