The mission of the CompTIA ISAO is to advance the cybersecurity resiliency of the global tech industry. The CompTIA ISAO is intended to serve as the focal point for dealing with all cyber-threats to technology vendors, MSPs, solution providers, integrators, distributors, and business technology consultants.
Originally launched and supported by ConnectWise, the ISAO’s management and operations were transferred on March 1, 2020, to CompTIA, a leading trade association for the global information technology industry. As a vendor-neutral, non-profit, member-led trade association, CompTIA is ideally situated to manage the ISAO moving forward and the organization will benefit greatly from CompTIA’s resources and global reach.
Your engagement with the CompTIA ISAO will ultimately do a great service to everyone in the tech industry and the customers we collectively serve.
