ISACA—formerly the Information Systems Audit and Control Association—is the single international source for information technology (IT) controls. As president, Grace will lead the 480-member St. Louis Chapter, and will be responsible for supporting efforts centered on information systems auditing, assurance, security, and governance.

As a former Technology Officer/Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) and leader in the fields of IT, internal audit, financial management, and corporate accounting, he has brought best practices to global organizations and helped drive solutions that strengthen and enhance existing practices.

Since joining MorganFranklin in 2010, Grace has been responsible for developing the company's Financial Management and Performance Improvement practice in the St. Louis region while leading Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) and Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular No. A-123 engagements at a high-profile U.S. government agency.
