The Association
for Today’s
IT Professionals and Tech-Companies

Our vision is for our members to deliver outcomes which enhance and enrich society through the understanding and application of technology in an increasingly online world.

 

MEMBER SERVICES

We aim to deliver the best service offering

to our members to assist them in building and growing their IT career. At ITA, we believe in continual professional development, and offer a range of training opportunities and mentoring programs. Through our events, conferences and online forums, members can connect and engage with other industry professionals, while enriching their technical knowledge and management skills.

eNewsletter & eBooks

Published monthly, “The Shape” is ITA’s electronic newsletter. We feature articles on a variety of technical and non-technical aspects of the IT Industry, aimed at educating and informing a broad audience across Europe.
When joining and upon each renewal thereafter, Professional members have the option to take a copy of an ebook chosen by the Board. The book available will change over time so members will be able to expand their libraries with each renewal.

Online Short Courses

In association with Educba, ITA runs regular online short courses on a variety of topics important to IT Professionals. These courses are a combination of 4-6 one-hour webinars, background study and an optional online assessment task at the end of the course. Passing the online assessment task at the end of the ITA Short Courses will help qualify for recognition as a ITA Certified Practicing Member.

Forums

ITA operates a number of private forums for financial members to share information, ask questions and just converse with their industry peers on a range of topics (technical and otherwise). Peer review ensures that information shared is correct and up-to-date, and the closed nature of the forums means that members can ask questions without fear of reprisal for sharing information in the public domain.

Public Comment

ITA is one of the peak representative bodies for IT Professionals in Europe. Our members are experts in a variety of fields, and ITA draws upon the knowledge of its membership to provide expert comment, advice and education to the community, industry and government sectors. We publish press releases on topics of importance to our members and the community, respond to requests for comment from various levels of government during policy development, and publish information based on our own research.

Professional Development

As part of our code of ethics, members agree to continue to update and enhance their technical knowledge and management skills by training, studying, and the sharing of information and experiences with fellow professionals.
In order to facilitate this, ITA will track training/educational activities undertaken by members, and upon achieving a set number of approved “Professional Development Points” (PDPs) in a given calendar year, financial members will be recognised as a “Certified Professional Member”, and able to provide a link to a publicly viewable education/training history.

Member Discounts

A number of companies offer financial members of ITA discounts on their services. Once singed in, you can review up-to-date pricing and benefit details. But there are many discounts and deals with high potential value, broad appeal, and wide availability, depending on the membership tier or add-on you choose.

CODE OF ETHICS

This set of principles has been designed to assist members in sound professional judgement while upholding ethical ideas and obligations.

Our code of ethics was created by the predecessor to ITA, and is globally recognised, having been adopted as the basis for similar codes of conduct by other like-minded organisations all over the world.

Our code of ethics commit our members to maintaining the confidentiality and integrity of the computer systems they manage, for the benefit of all of those involved with and affected by them. No single set of rules could apply to the enormous variety of situations and responsibilities that exist, but while IT Professionals must always be guided by their own professional judgment, we hope that consideration of this code will help when difficulties arise.

Members of ITA are required to abide by our code of ethics at all times – failure to do so may result in exclusion from the organisation.

Fair Treatment

I will treat everyone fairly. I will not discriminate against anyone on grounds such as age, disability, gender, sexual orientation, religion, race or national origin.

Privacy

I will access private information on computer systems only when it is necessary in the course of my duties. I will maintain the confidentiality of any information to which I may have access. I acknowledge statutory laws governing data privacy such as the Australian Privacy Principles.

Communication

I will keep users informed about computing matters that may affect them — such as conditions of acceptable use, sharing of common resources, maintenance of security, occurrence of system monitoring and any relevant legal obligations.

System Integrity

I will strive to ensure the integrity of the systems for which I have responsibility, using all appropriate means — such as regularly maintaining software and hardware; analysing levels of system performance and activity; and, as far as possible, preventing unauthorised use or access.

Co-operation

I will co-operate with and support my fellow computing professionals. I acknowledge the community responsibility that is fundamental to the integrity of local, national, and international network resources.

Honesty

I will be honest about my competence and will seek help when necessary. When my professional advice is sought, I will be impartial. I will avoid conflicts of interest; if they do arise I will declare them.

Education

I will continue to update and enhance my technical knowledge and management skills by training, study, and the sharing of information and experiences with my fellow professionals.

Social Responsibility

I will continue to enlarge my understanding of the social and legal issues that arise in computing environments, and I will communicate that understanding to others when appropriate. I will strive to ensure that policies and laws about computer systems are consistent with my ethical principles.

Workplace Quality

I will strive to achieve and maintain a safe, healthy, productive workplace for all users.
