RIYADH, Saudi Arabia:- ISACA is an international professional association focused on the areas like IT (information technology) governance, risk management, cybersecurity, data privacy and CMMI (data maturity). ISACA offers certifications in the subject areas of Data Privacy Solutions, Data Science and COBIT and also provide maturity models for Data (CMMI).
The collaboration will be formally introduced during the Global AI Summit taking place between September 13-15 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
There is great potential of collaboration between ISACA and National Data Management Office (NDMO), part of the Saudi Data & AI Authority. This collaboration will be the first of its kind in the KSA to:
- Deliver balanced growth of the "Knowledge-Creation and Knowledge-Spreading Ecosystem for Data Management" in the country
- Empower NDMO to benefit from ISACA’s expansive network of global members
- Support NDMO’s mission of promoting the creation of knowledge for data management in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia
- Establish tailored training courses and certifications that will help build data literacy and promote a more substantial data management culture across the country
This collaboration with the ISACA is an important step in fostering better data management best practices nationwide. Data is quickly becoming one of the most important assets to any organization. It’s imperative that firms have the necessary protocols in place to not only manage data but analyze and leverage the insights that it can provide as well.
“This is an exciting new venture for ISACA and we’re eager to begin working with the NDMO team to help implement the required Data Capabilities across the country.” said Steve Mole of ISACA.
