March 10, 2009

BALTIMORE, March 10 /PRNewswire/ — Fortrex Technologies (www.fortrex.com) is proud to announce that Senior Risk Management Consultant, Peter Spier, has been elected President of the ISACA Western New York Chapter (046) and Chairman of its Program Committee. “I am honored to assume these roles and am looking forward to my continued involvement with the chapter,” says Spier.

In 2008, Spier assumed the vice-presidential role where, as a member of the chapter Board, he worked with the International organization to identify an opportunity for the chapter to expand its geographic territory to include a 50-mile radius surrounding both the cities of Buffalo and Rochester, leading to a 12.5% membership growth.

In cooperation with chapter leadership, Spier is expecting similar growth this year as supported by an aggressive program of event offerings that is targeted to provide quality continuing education credits and training to members and area information technology and audit professionals. Strategically leveraging cooperation and coordination opportunities with other area professional organizations, chapter resources, and the many distinguished member areas of knowledge and expertise, planned programs are to include topics on Payment Card Industry compliance; Information Technology Governance, Risk management and Compliance (GRC); The ISO:27002 standard; Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) certification study review sessions; The 4th annual Rochester Security Summit (www.rochestersecurity.org); and a holiday membership appreciation and awards dinner, among other offerings.

Further 2009 efforts are to include a web-site re-launch (www.isacawny.org) and student membership campaign.
