The Amman Chapter of the Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA) has secured two global awards: Outstanding Chapter Achievement Award and Outstanding Chapter Leader Award. These accolades were awarded among over 200 Chapters of the global ISACA organization.

The awards were presented during a ceremony in Phoenix, Arizona, on the sidelines of the 2024 North America Conference. The evaluation was conducted by a panel of experienced volunteers, who assessed the community and professional achievements of the various chapters. Representing the Jordanian association, Hussam Khattab and Tamer Ajramai accepted the awards.

ISACA Amman was recognized for its distinguished programs serving the local community in cybersecurity and information systems audit and control. This marks the third global award for the association since its inception, following its recognition as the ISACA Innovative Chapter Program Award in 2020.
