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).

Its mission is to identify, address and communicate issues related to the impact of current and emerging technologies on both information integrity and information systems assurance. Focusing on these issues, UW CISA promotes and supports:

  • Research: investigative projects on professional, social, economic and behavioural impacts;
  • Education and Knowledge Transfer: creation, marketing and delivery of innovative informing activities and materials;
  • Interaction: dialogue among practitioners, educators, students and other interested parties. 

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 executive director, J. Efrim Boritz.
