The University of Waterloo Centre for Information Integrity and Information Systems Assurance (UW CISA) was founded in 1998 by the School of Accountancy at the University of Waterloo, the Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada (CPA Canada) and the Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA).

The mission of UW CISA falls under three headings:

  • Research: Identify, create and deliver research addressing the expanding boundaries of information integrity and assurance;
  • Education and knowledge transfer: Support and promote the marketing and delivery of innovative educational activities and materials related to information integrity and assurance issues;
  • Interaction: Identify, communicate and promote information integrity and assurance issues that are important to professionals working in these areas; and to support and promote interaction on those issues among practitioners, educators and students.

UW CISA is an administrative sub-unit within the Centre of Accounting Research and Education (CARE).

The centre invites and welcomes new partners to share in its mission. Please contact the director, J. Efrim Boritz.
