The agreement will pave the way for both organisations to conduct joint seminars and workshops for the benefit of CA Sri Lanka members, while special discounts will also be made available for members of both bodies on various programmes organized by the two bodies.

ISC2 will also provide assistance in driving the CA Sri Lanka IT GRC forum which is expected to be launched shortly.

CA Sri Lanka President, Mr. Sujeewa Rajapakse said, the IT Faculty of CA Sri Lanka regularly organizes a wide range of IT programmes which are relevant in today’s context for the benefit of the accounting professionals in Sri Lanka.

“CA Sri Lanka has recently entered into a series of MoUs with leading global IT bodies such as Microsoft, ISACA in our continuing endeavor to offer our members the best of qualifications and services, and this agreement with ISC2 is one such initiative in this continuing endeavor,” he added.
