ISACA Names 2017-2018 Board

ISACA has installed its 2017-2018 Board of Directors.

At its annual general meeting, Theresa Grafenstine, inspector general of the US House of Representatives (who served as vice chair the previous term), was elected to lead ISACA’s board as chair.

Over the past 25 years, Grafenstine has served in the inspector general community in both the legislative and executive branches of the U.S. federal government. As the inspector general, she is responsible for planning and leading independent, non-partisan audits, advisories and investigations of the financial and administrative functions of the House.

ISACA also named Robert Clyde, managing director of Clyde Consulting LLC, as vice-chair. Clyde is an NACD Board Leadership Fellow and serves as executive chair of the board of directors for White Cloud Security, and executive advisor to HyTrust and BullGuard Software. He previously served as the CEO of Adaptive Computing and the CTO of Symantec.

In total, 13 individuals were installed on the 2017-2018 ISACA Board of Directors during the Saturday meeting in Chicago. In addition to Grafenstine and Clyde, the named directors are:

  • Brennan P. Baybeck, vice president of Global IT Risk Management for Oracle Corp.
  • Zubin Chagpar, head of Amazon Web Services’ public-sector business in the Middle East and Africa

“I am grateful for the opportunity to help lead the organization that has provided me so much fulfillment,” said Grafenstine. “I am privileged to work with and on behalf of our global professional community to advance the positive potential of technology in the professions that we serve and society as a whole.”

Prior to joining the House Office of Inspector General (OIG), Grafenstine was in the Department of Defense (DoD) OIG, where she led acquisition audits of major weapon systems and was selected to respond to high-profile Congressional audit requests.

“Terry’s passion for ISACA, breadth of experience and dedication to our global professional community make her ideally suited to provide inspired leadership for our board and the entire organization,” said Loeb. “It is a privilege to work with her and the entire board as we advance our efforts to maximize ISACA’s impact, support the professions we globally serve, and deliver on the positive potential of technology.”
