Robert E Stroud“It takes two flints to make a fire” has been attributed to noted author Louisa May Alcott and it truly symbolizes the teamwork that goes into delivering ISACA’s activities and resources, and specifically, theISACA Journal. Thousands of members have shared their time and expertise with the Journal since it was introduced in 1973 as a quarterly publication named The EDP Auditor Journal.

Since then it has grown in size and circulation and has earned a reputation as a highly respected global peer-reviewed source of practical knowledge. The Journal is consistently rated as one of the top member benefits and value and satisfaction are high across all job functions and global regions. According to the ISACA Member Needs Survey, 83 percent of members are satisfied with the Journal and 81 percent believe it is of value to members.

This is possible only because of the dedication of article authors and other volunteers, including contributing editors and editorial reviewers, who have been instrumental every step of the way. Two of these volunteers hit milestones this year—Steve Ross is marking his 15th year as author of the Information Security Matters column and after volume 6 (and nine years of contributions) Tommie Singleton is retiring from writing the IS Audit Basics column. Both of these columns are widely read and respected and have contributed to the knowledge and lively debate among many ISACA constituents.

Steve and Tommie are great representatives of the many members around the world who volunteer their time and help propel ISACA’s valuable publications, events, translations, research, certification programs and other resources, which are created to serve our constituents. This teamwork is priceless and I thank you all for making ISACA a worldwide leader and innovator.
