As members of the ISACA Memphis, we must practice honesty and integrity in fulfilling our responsibilities and comply with all applicable laws and regulations.

Reporting Responsibility

This Whistleblower Policy is intended to encourage and enable members to raise serious concerns internally so that ISACA Memphis can address and correct inappropriate conduct and actions. It is the responsibility of all board members, officers, members and volunteers to report concerns about violations of ISACA Memphis’ code of ethics or suspected violations of law or regulations that govern ISACA Memphis’ operations.

No Retaliation

It is contrary to the values of ISACA Memphis for anyone to retaliate against any board member, officer, member or volunteer who in good faith reports an ethics violation, or a suspected violation of law, such as a complaint of discrimination, or suspected fraud, or suspected violation of any regulation governing the operations of ISACA Memphis. A member who retaliates against someone who has reported a violation in good faith is subject to discipline up to and including termination of membership.

Reporting Procedure
