The “Certified Information Systems Auditor” (CISA) designation is the long-established and highly-regarded professional credential from ISACA. It is an internationally recognized standard for individuals practicing as Information Systems Auditors, as well as those generally involved in designing and implementing information system controls and security. The CISA examination is a comprehensive assessment of each candidate’s ability to function in these roles, and is currently offered three times per year, in June, September, and December, at exam locations throughout the world.
Many internal auditors who want to become Information Systems Auditors find the CISA the best vehicle to acquire key knowledge and demonstrate their abilities.
To better understand what's required for the CISA exam, and if it's right for you, we'll work through the CISA's five domains, which include:
The Process of Auditing Information Systems
Governance and Management of IT
Information Systems Acquisition, Development and Implementation
Information Systems Operations, Maintenance and Support
Protection of Information Assets
You'll gain a complete understanding of what's required for the CISA based on ISACA's 2015 Review Manual. By the end of the session, you'll be in a good position to evaluate whether you'd like to challenge the exam to obtain your CISA designation.
For this course, your session leader will be Craig McGuffin, who successfully passed the 2003 CISA exam, tying for second place among almost 12,000 candidates worldwide.
