“It was really an interesting experience as I get to know a lot, particularly the concept of GRC, which basically meant Governance, Risk management and Compliance. With the speakers sharing their experiences and knowledge in the Security and Compliance tracks, it made me much more aware and gained valuable information from it. It has also made me realise the importance on not only IT security, but IT governance and compliance as well. Without these 3 major components, it will be total chaos as there is no form of control at all. If i were to get a chance to help out or attend this conference, I would go for it again :)”

“It was a great experience volunteering in this conference organised by ISACA Singapore Chapter. I’ve learnt things such as how PCI Compliance is implemented to reduce frauds, what are portfolios, programmes and projects, and how forensic can be linked to risk management. Other then the informational talks by the professional speakers, we as volunteers in the organizing team learn more on how an event is planned, prepared and carried out. This learning experience is what we do not have in school.”
– Cher Hui

“Being my first time helping out in a conference, it was definitely an eye opening for me, seeing how the event is planned, prepared and organized. It was a beneficial experience to help out and listen to the talks by professional speakers. Although Some of the talks were profound to me, but there were some interesting talks on cloud computing and computer forensic which broaden my knowledge. Overall, I was glad to have a chance to help out in the TACS conference. I would volunteer again if there is a need and free time.”
